Senior training is subject to a Christmas/New Year break and will cease for the season by the last week of March 2022 – unless there are ‘significant’ league slip games to play, when the training may be extended for a further period.

Costs: Please note that the midweek training session is Free to paid-up members who are also paying regular match fees. Otherwise, a £4 / £2.50 training fee (Senior / Student) is due from those attending who are ‘occasionals’ or not members of the club. The training fee will also be applicable if and when the number of sessions exceeds 24.

Junior sessions:

Some of the Junior sessions are devoted to age-group matches against other clubs and schools, which may mean the start time and finish time are changed. Refer also to the Junior pages on the Club’s web site.
