Tewkesbury Tigers under 9’s have started the 2012/13 season with a new sponsor, Genharts Precision Engineers of Cheltenham, owner Frank Cliford has provided the children with socks, shorts, gloves, tracksuit bottoms and a shirt each. The age group has grown from last year and now has 22 members in the squad, which could still grow over the next few weeks.

They train each Sunday morning from 10:30 am till 12pm at The Moats, home of the senior Tewkesbury teams. This seasons training has started really well as this is the 1st season the children have done full contact, they all seem very keen to get involved and cant wait to play their 1st game, which is in a couple of weeks against Old Richians. This will be a good test as Old Richians are usually a well drilled team, so hopefully the children will do well and enjoy themselves. Enjoyment is the main aim of the age group, with a focus on fair play, discipline and team spirit.

All children of any experience are welcome, of your child is interested in playing, either pop along on a Sunday morning and see one of the coaches.

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.
