Rookies Only

Have you always wanted to try a sport, but never knew where to start? Trying something new can be really intimidating - which is why we've made our Rookies Only leagues to give you the confidence to try it out in a fun and welcoming environment.

 

We have two different options: learning the basics of the sport under the guidance of our knowledgable and fanatastic instructors, and hat leagues which will give you some for-fun experience playing with others at your level.
