What Player Level Are You?

  • Fundamentals: is tailored for a wide range of players, including beginners, novices, and social players who enjoy friendly matches but haven’t received any formal coaching previously. It’s equally valuable for intermediate players looking to revisit the basics, strengthen their footwork, and fine-tune their technique. Sessions are limited to 8 players.
  • Intermediate: (Competition Grades: B – D) Players have an understanding of general technique but they could still have issues in some basic areas. The coaching approach is structured around routines, and in order to participate, players have to be able to consistently execute full-court shots including clears, drops, smashes, defence and net play. Sessions are limited to 8 players.
  • Stroke Correction: Tailored for all skill levels, these sessions allow players to choose their focus, whether it’s perfecting a smash or enhancing power and accuracy. Each session typically focuses on different shot for each half hour period and always includes an overhead stroke. Sessions are limited to 4 players for personalised attention.
