When writing this guide I assumed no previous knowledge on the part of the reader, other than the ability to juggle 3 balls. It is my hope that someone who had never juggled clubs before could work their way through it and learn every trick with no outside help, however I would not recommend this method. It is easier and more fun to learn directly from another person, at least part of the time, referring to a written guide to suggest new trick ideas, and for help with particular problems you may be having.

Some of the tricks described here are exclusively 'club tricks', whereas others can also be done with balls. If you are trying to learn a trick from the 2nd category then it is obviously a big help if you can do the ball version already, and so I have included an appendix with descriptions of a few such patterns as juggled with balls.
