1 Adult and Junior Personal Performance Courses

Most Herts leisure centres and some villages run coaching courses for juniors and adults.  Examples are shown below. Short duration courses e.g. 6 weeks may not be repeated, similarly the prices are likely to change (also in some cases they depend whether you are a member or not) so it is important to check these details.
