Winter practices are starting Monday 29th September. They’re at the usual location, the floodlit pitch at Hove RFC, at the usual time of 6:45pm – 9pm. There are showers and changing rooms we can use at the venue.
Bring boots, water, a white and a black top, legs for running and hands for catching and throwing! First session back will be a ‘Get back into it’ session, so a couple of quick drills and games, no standing around listening to explanations of stuff.
Practice sessions cost £3 each, and you are also required to buy Club Membership (£10, or £5 for students) and UKU Basic Membership.
