A note on our session labels

Whereas in the past we've categorised our sessions with reference to NGS grades, we're now focusing more on the feel of the session.

Relaxed   (formerly 9 HIGH and Improvers): the name says it all!
Social   A bit more challenging than Relaxed. This is suitable for most of our members.
Open  A bit more challenging than Social

While members are free to attend whatever sessions they find suit them, all members are actively invited to play in our Allcomers Social Pairs at the club.
