At Kingfisher, all coaches are qualified and licensed coaches. In addition, they will have a DBS certificate and have attended a First Aid and Safeguarding Children course all in the last three years. Licensed coaches will have their own insurance cover.

All licensed coaches offer 1-2-1 coaching to all members. This one to one coaching at Kingfisher is by arrangement at a mutually convenient time and will depend on the availability of a table.

We have a comprehensive Adult and Junior coaching programme as well as holiday activity camps which is run by our Head Coach Ajay Naik. Please refer to Adult and Junior Coaching section.

If you require 1-2-1 coaching, please contact Coaching Officer Raj Patel.


Adult coaching is designed for players who would like to take their game further or just learning to play. We welcome players of all abilities.  We currently have Adult Group Sessions on Monday and Thursday. Please check Session Times for latest timings.

There’s usually a lot of group training drills, focusing on technique, movement, service, receive and match-play.  Sessions will also involve Multiball training which is a great way to speed up your development.

Currently Adult sessions are £35 per 90 minute session. Sessions are run by our head coach Ajay Naik and a supporting coach.
