Beginners courses are usually held during the Early summer months consisting of three two hour sessions that are individually supervised for three consecutive weeks, followed by three weeks under general supervison that usually take place on Tuesday/ Thursday evenings starting at 7.00pm. We run three beginners courses throughout the year, usually up to 20 participants. These courses run usually in early May, late June .
All Juniors must be over the age of 11
Due to dark nights and limited space indoors we do run beginners courses in winter but to only limited groups.
If you require any more information please do not hesitate to contact us by E-mail or just pop in to the club on any of the evenings and have a look or chat. We will make you feel most welcome and answer any of your queries
