We will have break in between our training sessions. As the canteen at the venue is closed for Summer holidays, no lunch, drinks or snacks can be served during our breaks.

Food is prohibited inside the Sports Hall of Kellett School. However, you can bring and consume snacks outside the Sports Hall. In that case, please keep the place clean and leave no garbage in the venue.
