OUR TEAM

COACHING CREW

Our coaches work as tight-knit team focusing on each player and comparing notes on how we can improve their game.

Our support staff are the glue to our business – you will be greeted by them and chat to them on the phone. They are there to help and support you so please say hi next time you’re at the centre.  There’s Gill (our superstar who runs the place), Mya, Maitre, Jessie, Tudor and Dominic.
