2012 SUMMER TRAINING  

It is summer again here in Finland, which means we now say good bye to our winter home at Palomylly and hello to our summer co-home (with SKK), Ruskeasuo. Weather permitting, we have scheduled training every Tuesday and Friday starting at 17:30. All kit (bats, balls, pads, gloves etc) are available from the club's equipment, so you are always welcome even though you don't have any of your own. SKK has been nice enough to let us use their nets and mat, so please we should take extra care at training with their equipment. We are eternally grateful SKK for your support.

More training information, including cancellations will always be posted on our 
Facebook page. Please friend us if you haven't already.
