The hugely popular One to One Coaching Programme will restart on October 3rd at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton.

The programme enables players from eight years old to be coached in a personal environment by experienced and expert Somerset coaches who are qualified to a high level and able to work on all aspects of a player’s game.

Players will receive personal feedback from the coach and a coaching card to take away so they can continue to develop techniques and skills outside of the programme.

Sessions are available on Mondays, Wednesdays and during half term, at a cost of £38 per hour whilst a group of two, three or four players could enjoy a session for £45 per hour.
