Floodlights all ready for the winter!

Floodlights all ready for the winter!

We would like to send a huge thank you to Luke Boskett and his team from GES (Gloucestershire Electrical Services) who came down to the ground this week to carry out some much need work to our floodlight system. Having the support of companies like GES means that we can continue to provide rugby to men, women, and children in Tewkesbury during the long dark winter months.   Thank you GES!

Under 15’s show off their creative side!

Under 15’s show off their creative side!

Our Under 15’s have their own sense of unique styling and when they asked us to let them design their tour team shirts themselves we were only too happy to support them. Unfortunately, the tour had to be canceled due to COVID but they make great training tops. The team found a sponsor for the shirts, so we can now see these striking shirts on the pitch every Sunday. Big thank you to CS Cleaning http://cscleaningservices.co.uk for sponsoring the shirts.

New Junior Pitch starts seeing some action

New Junior Pitch starts seeing some action

It’s fantastic to see our Under 12’s pitch seeing some action.   Last year we applied for funding to allow us to expand the security fence currently around the ground which ensures the new pitch, built inside the new fence, provides enough playing area to allow all aged under 12’s players to play and train within a secure ground and make it possible to use the clubhouse facilities during their training period. 

We would like to thank the following companies and trusts that made this possible.  Nat West, Enovert Trust, GCC, Renishaw, Summerfield Trust, Wheatpieces PC, Tewkesbury TC, 200 Club, Secura which included secure fencing, stone burying, soil relaying and laser grading, plus seeding which gives security and all the work the pitch needs to ensure it meets all the club’s needs for future years.

Tigers supporting Tewkesbury Fields Care Home this Halloween

Come on Tigers let’s get carving for Halloween! Tewkesbury Tigers are supporting Tewkesbury Fields Care Home (run by Barchester Care) which provides residential, nursing, and respite care in Tewkesbury. Let’s help bring some smiles to the faces of their residents this Halloween and carve a pumpkin! If you’d like to take part bring your pumpkin to the clubhouse on Sunday 25 October (between 10-1pm) so we can take them to the home on Sunday for display! 

Make sure you mark your pumpkin with a name and TTRFC so that if you win a prize the home knows it’s a Tewkesbury Tigers pumpkin and the name of the winners so we can contact you.

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.
