Players should park in the parking lot behind the church. The parking lot can be entered from either Sulgrave Road or Darby Road. Players should then enter through the terra cotta colored door and climb one flight of stairs to find the playing room. In addition to a spacious playing room, there are separate rooms available for post-game analysis and for non-playing parents on most nights!
