Natland coaching dates until July 2023

Dear All,
We will be running Saturday coaching sessions at Natland  up until end of July. There will be a break in August.

I set out below the dates that Dan, Beth and I will be coaching.

1st Dan only (Finish no later than 2.45pm)
8th Dan plus Beth

22nd Dan plus Beth
29th Dan Only

6th Dan plus Beth
20th Dan plus Beth
27th Dan Only

3rd Dan plus Beth
10th Dan Only
17th Dan plus Beth (to be confirmed)
24th Dan Only

1st Dan plus Beth (allocated for coaching day for coaches)
8th Dan Only
15th Dan Only
22nd Dan plus Beth
29th Dan Only

Please note that we are discontinuing the Group session that has been running from 11-1pm. Unfortunately we do not have a sufficient number of regular attendees for it to break even. Going forward we will be taking one to one bookings during this time and providing spare table  booking time (Like the Saturday morning slots when Dan is not coaching).

This offers a broad spectrum of pricing for coaching/training options as follows

One to one  or one to two coaching with :
Dan £30 per hour Members /£35per hour non members
Beth £16 per hour (£6 subsidy available for female players for their first session with Beth)
Peter £5 per hour Members/ £8 per hour non members
Book a table with your own playing partner £5 per table per hour(No coaching provided). If I am not booked for coaching I am happy to partner but this needs to be pre agreed with me.

Table priority will be given to the coached sessions.

Please note that one to two sessions are effectively half price per player. Sessions can be tailored to your requirements and include Multiball, drills with your partner overseen by the coach, match play analysis, problem diagnosis, videoing etc.

Time slots are generally available from 8 or 9 am

Sessions have to be booked and paid for in advance. If you would like to book a session please email me with your preferred date/time
