Dates of sessions for the whole season are shown below. Note that due to School holidays and a School event, there are certain Mondays and Fridays across the season where there is no social play. We have secured additional sessions on some Tuesdays in school half terms and Easter holiday this season. This is to help fulfil our league fixtures and ensure space for our American Tournament, a fun evening of play open to every member.  Members will be informed nearer times if Tuesday sessions are also available for social play.
