Everyone is really looking forward to starting the new season on Sunday 20 September.   With all the teams back on the grounds (we will not be using the Vineyards) it is going to be a busy time, so the start and end times have been staggered.   U7 to U11 will start at 9.30 and finish at 11.00 and the U12 to U17 will start at 11.30 and finish at 1.00pm.   

We would urge the U7 to U11 parents and players to leave the ground as quickly as possible to make way for the next groups.  However, we recognise that some parents will need to remain for other children in the older groups. 

Before arriving at the Club 

Prior to attending training and matches, all players, officials, volunteers, and spectators should undergo a self-assessment for any Covid-19 symptoms.

No one should leave home to participate in any type of rugby activity if they, or someone they live with, have any of the following Covid-19 symptoms.

  • A high temperature
  • A new, continuous cough
  • A loss of, or change to, their sense of smell or taste.

Should an individual exhibit any such symptoms, they should follow NHS and PHE guidance on self-isolation with immediate effect.

Arriving at the Club

When arriving at the Club there will be a club representative at the gate to provide guidance.  You will be asked to register on our Track & Trace app and scan our unique GR code which can be found on posters around the grounds.  EVE pass can be downloaded for IOS and Android on the app store.   Only 1 parent needs to scan in but MUST include the number in their party/bubble.  Please remember to check out of the app when you leave the club. 


We welcome parents to stay and watch their children, but we would remind all spectators that you must maintain and respect the government’s social distancing guidance at all times. Groups of 6 are permitted. 

Hand Sanitisers

Hand Sanitisers will be located around the grounds.


Return to Rugby Questions

If you have any questions about Return to Rugby training then please contact your coach directly.  

Your coach will confirm which session/group players have been assigned to. 

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.
