The Way to Improve Standards of Play in your Club
A number of clubs have at least a Club Coach on their books who is able to deal with people new to the game. The Flying Circus is concerned more with players past this stage and will provide a coach, of the appropriate level of expertise and experience, to move your players on by coming to your club and running a full day course. Please refer to near the back of the FIXTURES BOOK for the complete details of which level is required by your members – from ‘Improvers (with Handicaps 20-24 )–right through to Gold level– WE CAN DO IT!
The intention is to visit any club within the NW Federation during the 2013 season that requires tuition, or to put on a course at another club also requesting that level of course. In order to plan the programme we need to know the level required, the numbers involved and the dates when your members and lawns are available. We plan to publish the dates of courses on the NWFCC web site and make them open to all members of the Federation to attend. This will ensure that all players have the chance to attend a course of the level they require even if their own club is concentrating on a different standard of play. The Federation will fund the course and so there is no cost to the club (other than providing the coaches with lunch).
