For your information
  • Inclement weather
    Sessions are scheduled all year round and continue through most weathers! Players should wear warm clothes during winter months when the weather is normally dry but can be cold. In the summer, a cap/sunhat and sunscreen are advisable. Play continues in light/medium rain so an anorak with hood is useful. We will contact you if a session is unable to go ahead.
  • Floodlights
    No extra costs for lights when sessions are scheduled in the dark.

Coaching sessions can be booked by downloading the MDL Coaching App (Apple and Android). Latest news updates are posted HERE.
