Unprecedented has become the most used word in the English language over the past five months. But it is probably the best word to describe a year that will be remembered for a lifetime; a year that has tested every aspect of both our family, social and working lives.

Of course, we are not through the devastation wreaked by Covid-19. Much as we are all trying to usher the pandemic to the history books as quickly as we can, we have to remain cautious and vigilant.

We are aware and empathetic to the fact it’s affected different people in different ways and we aim to play our part to create a safe place to come and train, whilst distracting you from the madness surrounding us all. It’s a great reason to get fresh air, to learn, interact with others, get/keep fit and most importantly, have fun.

TRAINING SESSIONS:


When: Mondays 19:00 - 20:15 (up until and including August 31st) Where: Hough End.

We will shortly lose the light on Monday’s and so we are planning to move back to floodlit facilities on Wednesday 2nd September.
