Main training sessions take place on Wednesday evenings at the Jaguar Sports & Social Club in Brown's Lane.

The ladies' changing room is in the Leisure Centre, but everyone gathers by the men's changing room, just on the left on the approach to the five-a-side pitch, at around 7.15pm - 7.20pm, ready for a 7.30 pm start.
