The project gave me a lot in terms of building a relationship with the Company. Very supportive throughout, great feedback and lots of patience.

I loved working in the space at RoguePlay, there was loads of it! It was affordable and we were made very welcome indeed.

The Company is a fantastic blend of discipline, humour, inspiration, strength and most importantly, all members of RoguePlay give you that sense that they totally and utterly believe in you no matter how rubbish or weak you feel at a training session.
