Coaching Dates with Dan OConnell

Coaching Dates with Dan O’Connell (and in the near future his wife Beth!)/ Incentive scheme for Female Players/ Price Increases/ Hall access when there is no coaching

Dear Natland Members and regulars of the coaching sessions with Dan, 

Please see below the dates Dan will be coaching at Natland for the coming quarter. 

I am also delighted to advise that Dan’s wife Beth will be offering one to one or one to two coaching on most of these weekends.

 Beth is a former top 20 England ranked player and was in the top ten at Cadet, Junior and under 21 levels. She currently plays in the Premier Division of the Women’s British League. Beth has a Bachelors degree in Sport and Exercise Science and a Masters in Sport and Mental Health. Beth has a current DBS Certificate.

 Kendal League has agreed to provide a subsidy to female players for coaching with Beth as part of the national initiative to attract female players to table tennis. We will be giving priority to females for Beth’s time slots. Details about this and our new pricing structure appear below.

Incentive Scheme for Female Players

One to one or one to two coaching sessions may be booked with Beth at a price of £16 per hour. For female players the first session booked with Beth will cost only £10 per hour(First come basis and this initial subsidy is available for up to 10 different players for bookings this quarter to the 18th March). This offer is open to females of any age and any level of ability. 

New Pricing Structure for Coached sessions with Dan, Beth, Peter 

Unfortunately we need to put up our prices. We had a very large shortfall of income versus expenditure last quarter creating a level of subsidy that is too high for the Club to sustain. 

2 hour 11am-1pm Group session £12 (Juniors & Members) / £15 non members 

One to one sessions with Dan £30 per hour (Juniors/members) £35 per hour non members 

One to one sessions with Beth £16 per hour (Juniors/Members/ Non Members) 

One to one sessions with Peter £5 per hour(Juniors/Members) £8 per

 hour(Non members) 


Timing of sessions 

The group session runs from 11am to 1 pm. One to one coaching is generally available before and after the group session in hour or 90 minute slots from 8 or 9am to mid afternoon. 

Access to village hall for table tennis on Saturdays when Dan is not coaching 

Due to popular demand we are offering access to table tennis at the village hall on the Saturdays when we are not offering coaching. The time is a limited 2 hour slot from 9am until 11am including setting up and taking down time.  You need to sort out your own partner and will need to be prepared to assist in putting up and taking down tables, nets etc.. the cost is £3.60 per hour per person for singles / £7.20 per hour for a table if you are playing doubles. All places need to be booked as we only have four tables available. There is no coaching or supervision provided by the Club at this session. Juniors must be accompanied by an adult whilst they are at the hall.
