  • "Incredibly good lesson, very understanding and patient instructor who was able to tailor advice to my needs leading to vast improvement in a very short amount of time. Able to explain all the reaosns behine the techniques and push you outside of your comfort zone whilst remaining in contorl. Very efficient booking service as well." - Trip Advisor
  • "Instructors worked the kids hard and achieved good results, but were also very friendly and considerate towards their pupils. A very well-organised set-up which I would definitely recommend to others. Small classes were an added bonus!” - Customer Feedback

  • "We were totally impressed by everything we encountered with Parallel Lines. The call once we had arrived to check we knew where to be the next morning, have the right pass etc. was really helpful. Gary was outstanding – he had exactly the right balance of fun, combined with first rate teaching and genuine understanding of the age group. He totally made the week for Elsa, and thereby made the holiday for us as a family too." - Customer Feedback
