Ame-sama Tips:

Playing in a Foreign Country can be daunting but it doesn’t

have to be. HPC has group lessons called “School”. Just mention it at the Counter and the

they’ll know.

Here are the schedules:

The Fee is 1700. Ame-sama personally met all the coaches in this list and they are all nice and accommodating. What is going to happen is that everyone gets at least 10min with the coach at the time. Everyone rotates from table 1 – 7. Table 1, you get your time with the coach while the rest do Drills. This is a way to meet new friends. A Good thing is that once you are in, Japanese people will approach you wanting to play games. Sometimes it doesn’t happen and so, take the initiative. No harm in asking.

 

That’s All Folks!!

 

Best Regards,

Ame-sama
