We store our equipment in cupboards in the room. We do not have to take tables up and down and do not have to move or stack chairs. We have our own notice board with news and results.

We serve unlimited tea, coffee and biscuits in each session, and we believe you should enjoy them. Mugs and cups are always provided and are washed hygienically in a dishwasher.

Members Special
Summer 2017

Anyone is welcome to take all ten sessions in this course.

However, the course is particularly aimed at fulfilling our offer of one free lesson for all members who renewed their membership by Easter 2017. This offer expires at the end of the Summer Term, i.e. 20th July.

There are ten, two hour, sessions, given weekly. There is a break in the half term week. You will collect colour notes, and homework quizzes to store in an A5 binder.

If there is no lesson that appeals, members are welcome to redeem their offer at any Tuesday Evening or Wednesday Morning Friendly Practice session.

We have picked topics that could be of interest to members with some experience, but who might not have had a chance to develop a particular area of technique, or who are curious about a non playing aspect of the game.

We do hope you find something of interest.
