After months of lock-down the U16’s finally saw some action yesterday evening, when they kicked off the club’s junior RFC Return to Rugby fitness programme.   The U16’s have been trialling if, when and how we can bring back some of the junior teams to take part in fitness training during the closed season.   With only two pitches in use we can only accommodate a few teams whilst ensuring we maintain social distancing as well as ensuring safety for all concerned.  The sessions went really well, so we hope to introduce a few more in the coming weeks. But it’s great to be back in action!

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.
