    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a place for junior lessons in the Richmond Hill area? Looking for something for a total beginner. Age 6. More about introducing the game and having fun than anything too serious at this point.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try Alfred (416 509 9288), I met some of the kids that have lessons with him, they have so much fun and they progress quite quickly.

    I would recommend Alfred as well. I trained with him from age 11-17 when I was playing junior tournaments way back in the day. In the past 6 months ive seen coaches around coaching at agincourt, everyday etc etc and these guys have no idea what they are doing lol

    I agree with kungfugrip919. I play at Everyday occasionally. Some of those guys really have no idea how to coach. I saw Alfred feeding birds to a couple of adults once. Does he coach adults?

    Im sure he does. Ask him when you see him. I dont see why he would turn down business right?

    But yea i dont know where all these so called coaches come from. You know the coach sucks when u see him training someone who isnt even holding the right grip but yet they dont tell them and just feed birds to them.

    That being said if this means anything. When I was training with Alfred I was top12 in the province OBA ranked in my respective age groups. Played U14 U16 U19. I played singles, doubles and mix so I am telling you Alfred is good to go.

    Try Suria near Hw7 and Woodbine, a small dedicated training facility.
