In 2019 the club is also staging coaching sessions at an ‘improver’s level’ for club members. Tutor and dates for these coaching sessions to be advised.

An opportunity for less experienced players to play with advanced players is provided by the Wellesley Pairs Handicap event.

To play in the Wellesley Pairs no two players can exceed a combined grading total of six (6).
