Payment must be made at the time of registration to a coaching course and before any attendance. Registration must be made using clubspark. 

Group sessions will run in almost all weather conditions. If a session is to be cancelled then the coach will message the group. On even rarer occasions a decision will have to be made at the start of a session and this would be based on the individual nature of the group.

Summer Term 2024 Programme - is available to all members now. Don't forget to renew your membership before 1 April if you are booking with member rates. Our adult intermediate peak hour classes are member only courses.  Non members will be able to book on courses from Monday 8 April. Please click on the actual courses to find out more details on who the courses might be suitable for.

Coaching starts on Monday 15 April. Coaching will not run for bank holiday weekend 4 to 6 May and for half term from Saturday 25 May to Sunday 2 June.  Last day of coaching is Sunday 21 JulyCourses can be joined at any time in the term as long as there are spaces and payment is only taken for the lessons left in the term.

Coaching fees for this term, for the first time in several years, will be increasing by £1 per session. However if you sign up from the start of the course you will only pay the old price, after that the increase will come into play.
