* Payments for tennis court usage during weekday working hours (8:30-17:00) are accepted at the accounting office of RSU Red Cross Medical College; for evening/weekend visits, players may choose a payment option when booking the court on the phone (see number above). Please note that you should bring your own tennis equipment. Dressing rooms and showers are available.

** This martial art, based on rhythm, is open for boys and girls of all levels. Especially NEWCOMERS can start any time. Do not worry about your "level of fitness". All lessons are supposed to be challenging – without overstraining you! Strength and flexibility is the result of your own regular practice. And besides movement, Capoeira is about getting into contact with new people that share and enjoy the moment together inside the group. If you would like to get to know about what Capoeira is: visit us!

For more information please see www.epcapoeira.net and visit their Facebook page Expressão Paulista de Capoeira - Latvia. Vamos jogar Capoeira!
