These sessions need to be booked and, where applicable, paid for in advance through the Club Secretary (Peter). You can either just book a table or take advantage of coaching sessions. Generally we expect to run a group coached session 11am to 1 pm max 8 players. In addition one to one coaching sessions may be booked in blocks of 30 minutes before or after the group session. 

If there is insufficient demand or circumstances outside of our control the Club may cancel sessions. Any fees paid for a session cancelled by the Club will be refunded. If you wish to cancel your booking 48 hours’ notice must be given otherwise no refund will be given. 

The group session caters for all levels of players and is open to all ages. Very young and very  inexperienced players will need a dedicated partner which can be arranged  with sufficient notice. 

Saturday session costs 

The group 2 hour coached session with professional coach Dan O’Connell costs £8.00 per person for members and juniors and £10.00 per person non-members/pay as you play
