We run a year round program of lessons, with the aim of offering all our members the chance to train at any level across all disciplines.
Regular lessons are offered with local instructors at various venues on weekdays, evenings and weekends and we also offer clinics with visiting instructors often tied in with demos.
Lessons are provided with a subsidy for all members and there is an additional subsidy for members who have helped with running club activities. For more information of the current subsidies see ‘Benefits of Joining” on the Membership page.
