No Stroke Rehab class on Friday 11th May

This is just a quick note to let you all know that there will be NO stroke rehab class on Friday 11th of May, 2018.

I'll be travelling to North Wales that day for a silly event on the weekend.  So I'm sorry about that.

But don't forget, there will still be a class on Mondays at Ilkley Tennis Club.  If you don't know about this, click here to find out more...

All these are fantastic reasons to hire me (did you know you could hire me to help you with all these??)  But first we need to know what your goals and targets are...
