The minimum age for juniors that we can accept is 10 years old* and in order to comply with the Child Protection Guidelines all juniors, under 18, must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
If you are interested in taking a beginner’s course please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to check availability as the courses are very popular. It isn’t necessary to join the club to take a beginner’s course.
