Free places for affiliated clubs - Some clubs affiliated to the EBU may be able to receive a 'free place' on these courses.

Applications for a free place should only be made if it will be used in the spirit for which it is intended – to help a member provide lessons to bring new players in to the club as part of a club-wide effort to grow the membership and help the club thrive.
