Training

Monday night sessions start at the War Memorial Park Park and Ride at 6pm. There is only one group on Mondays.

Main training sessions are on Wednesday evenings at the Jaguar Sports & Social Club in Brown’s Lane. There are usually four groups running, join the group that meets your needs.
