Guru Match Academy 2017 - Apply Now

We are excited to announce that applications for the 2017 Guru Match Academy are now open! This is a concept that enables young match anglers between the ages of 13 and 17 to team up with an expert member of Team Guru for a day of tuition! The event will take place during the summer school holidays, on two consecutive mid-week days in August. The exact dates will be conformed in the next two weeks. Keep your eyes peeled on the Tackle Guru website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages for updates.

Taking place at the prolific Guru Makins Fishery in Warwickshire, the youngsters will meet in for an introduction and breakfast roll in the morning. They will then be allocated a tutor and peg for the day, before heading off with their Guru for tuition on the method and tactics are suited to their swim on the day. This year we’re hoping to get even more of our expert Guru’s involved with the coaching, on top of last year’s expert stable that included Steve Ringer, Andy Bennett, Paul Holland, Adam Rooney, Robbie Taylor, Mark Griffiths, Matt Djukic, and Steve Parry.

After the coaching, students will be served lunch in the main café area, before preparing for the afternoon match! This will see the students compete against each other in a three-hour event, battling it out infront of the Guru cameras who will be producing a film for broadcast on our website and social media. Our very own Dean Macey will be on hand to present the film and interview students throughout the day!

Like last year, two youngsters attending this year's Match Academy will receive a one-year sponsorship deal from Tackle Guru - an unmissable opportunity!
