Ahh the inner sanctum – can you smell the free breakfast, the coffee? The scent of the world’s best freshly applied wax as it dances on the morning breeze. This is the hotbed, where strategies are envisioned and coaches earn their crust. Where victors enter to the applause of their peers and where losers skulk to their locker biting down hard on bitter defeat. It’s also where they do their instagraming, eat copious amounts of free food and generally snooze like lions on the savannah. Welcome to the WSL’s Quik Pro Taj Mahal.
