Equity Policy Statement

For parents and carers

This club is committed to ensuring that equity is incorporated across all aspects of its development. In doing so it acknowledges and adopts the following Sport England definition of sports equity:

  • Sports equity is about fairness in sport, equality of access, recognising inequalities and taking steps to address them. It is about changing the culture and structure of sport to ensure it becomes equally accessible to everyone in society.
  • The club respects the rights, dignity and worth of every person and will treat everyone equally within the context of their sport, regardless of age, ability, gender, race, ethnicity, religious belief, sexuality or social/economic status.
  • The club is committed to everyone having the right to enjoy their sport in an environment free from threat of intimidation, harassment and abuse.
  • All club members have a responsibility to oppose discriminatory behaviour and promote equality of opportunity.
  • The club will deal with any incidence of discriminatory behaviour seriously, according to club disciplinary procedures.

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.

Our Clubhouse bar is now open on Friday from 7.00 pm - 10.00 pm and on Saturday from 12.00 noon - 7.00pm.  We will be closed on Sunday.  We have a total capacity of 60 inside the clubhouse and 54 in our outside garden area.  Other changes include the introduction of glasses in the clubhouse rather than plastic and cash can now be taken, but we would prefer card if possible.  We operate on a first-come first-served basis.

Tewkesbury RFC is operating a Track and Trace system for those using the Clubhouse bar.  Please help us by downloading EVE PASS app for IOS and ANDROID and registering.  Once you have downloaded the app simply scan the GR code on arrival.
