Similar to our Q & A session with Paul Hewitt in May, we are now going to have meetup at an open practice for those readers interested. It will be from 1 pm – 3:30 pm on Saturday August 9 at the RAC. It will be a great opportunity to talk with the coaching staff and see all the new players in action. The team will be leaving for their trip to Spain on August 12.
More details to follow.
