It was fantastic to see so many of our youngsters at the Club yesterday for our first day of the 20/21 Season. Everyone worked within the new confines of the game and had great fun.
Our Under 9 team is currently looking for new players to join their squad – open to boys and girls aged 8 if you have a youngster interested in rugby, you can pop down and see for yourself what a great atmosphere we have at Tewkesbury Tigers. Just send us an email to arrange to meet the Coach.

The RFU has issued the following update following the changes announced by the Government on Wednesday 9 September in relation to the ban on groups of more than six people meeting socially indoors and outdoors. Although social gatherings of more than six people will be banned in England from Monday 14 September, the Government has confirmed that organised sports and activities that have been through return to play protocols can continue. With the exception of clubs impacted by local lockdown restrictions, we remain at Stage D on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap. The rugby community can continue to organise non-contact fixtures with other clubs using Ready4Rugby and other touch rugby activity.
The RFU yesterday announced that the phased return of community rugby can move from Stage C to Stage D from Tuesday 1st September. Stage D means that we are able to start limited and restricted contact rugby training and organise inter-club non-contact fixtures. The reinstatement of some contact activity is important to ensure players can continue to practice core skills and can start to prepare as the game starts to return to normality with regular training and matches.
The club and all our coaches are working hard to ensure that these changes can be incorporated into training plans whilst ensuring that we continue to follow government Covid-19 guidance.
STAGE D ACTIVITY
