If you wish to book a pitch let, please read the Club’s guidelines before arriving by clicking here.

Please remember to book a pitch let before arrival at the club and you must include all members taking part in your pitch let slot. This is important from a track and trace perspective. The link to the booking system has been sent to all members via e-mail.

The club still requires volunteers to ensure the pitch can be open throughout the day. If anyone is able to help out, please contact the club’s COVID Officer, Jenny Eadie.
