Coaches

We have tried to create a team of knowledgeable and dedicated coaches with different backgrounds in order to be able to help our players in the best possible way. Some coaches have a background as world-class players, some were good players who never quite managed to take the last step into the PRO tour and some coaches have academic background. Together we form a strong team with high understanding of each individual.
