General Notes:

Clinics are tailored to suit any age group or any level of player, however the On-Court Sessions work best when each group is of a similar age and standard. 

Programs can be adapted to suit the group depending on whether there are more singles or doubles players.

Programs are better received when the Club’s Head Coach is involved in the On-Court Sessions – assisting Dave and supporting the members.

Additional days can be made available for any members who would like further training in private or semi-private sessions.
