Missed Lessons

If you miss a lesson for any reason, you are very welcome to organise a makeup class in another of our lessons of the same standard.  We will always oblige you in your choice of makeup lessons as long as we have availability in the class.

Washouts for children and adults

Our tennis terms last for 9 weeks, but we only charge for 6 weeks, as we assume that there will be washouts each Term.  If we have more than 3 weeks washed out, we provide credits for the student.  You are welcome to organise makeup sessions for any washed out sessions.

 


 

Scholarships

We provide financial need, special need and indigenous scholarships, so local kids, who may not otherwise be able to participate, can be involved in our program.  If you are eligible for a scholarship or if you know someone who is, please don’t hesitate to nominate yourself or them.
