Training is conducted twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Ferndale Park for all teams. As is our tradition, all players, including our women’s team, will share dinner together in the club-rooms after training on Thursdays. For this reason there is a strong bond between all players, across each team and age bracket. During the season the playing group hosts seven large social events, including the Annual Ball, which is the social event of the year.
