New Men’s and Ladies’ Nights!

Due to popular demand there will be a second monthly ladies’ club night on the fourth Monday of every month. This will start on Monday 23 August and the session will run from 7-10pm. The ladies’ night on the second Monday will also revert back to running from 7-10pm, not 6.30.

We are also introducing a men’s night which will be held on the first Monday of every month from 7-10pm, starting from 2 August. All are welcome!

Don’t forget that there is also a junior club session every Friday from 4.30-6pm. No club balls will be available for this session unfortunately, so please remember to take balls with you.
