Tewkesbury RFC

Our Mission Statement:  To provide opportunities for anyone to play rugby, from children to veterans, by providing a full range of teams to cater for all playing abilities for both male & female players

Tewkesbury RFC is an accredited England RFU and Gloucestershire RFU club and therefore operates within the RFU guidelines as well as ensuring that the Club is run to a Sport England standard from coaching to our facilities.  

Our aim is to ensure that all our players enjoy rugby in a safe environment where they can develop their personal and social skills as well as a wide range of transferable multi-sports skills.  

Tewkesbury RFC train and play at the Moats, the home of Tewkesbury RFC, in the vicinity of Tewkesbury’s ancient Abbey.

We play in amber and black.

We run a 1st XV and 2nd XV men’s team and a women’s XV as well as a walking rugby team for those that still want to play rugby but at a more gentle pace.

We have a strong junior section playing from the age of 6 (year 2) right through to our Under 17’s.  All players are welcome. Our players are mostly from local schools in the Tewkesbury area – we have a good relationship with both Tewkesbury Primary Schools and Tewkesbury Secondary School, but we welcome all players from the surrounding areas.  You can find out more about the RFU age-grade rugby programme at England RFU

 

5 November 2020 Parliament yesterday voted in favour of the Government’s national lockdown proposals aimed at curbing the increase in Covid-19 cases in England, which take effect from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December. In addition, the Government has announced the cessation of all community team sports during this period, which applies to Age Grade and Adult rugby activities below Championship and Premier 15s. This means that all our activities have stopped.
With effect from 5 November 2020, we return to Stage A on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap. This means that no competitive or formal rugby activities can be undertaken until at least Wednesday 2 December.
The RFU will now review what the implications of this national lockdown plan mean for clubhouses, schools, colleges, universities, etc., and will provide more detailed information in the Covid-19 Community Game Update.
We recognize that this is hugely disappointing for everyone, but as soon as we are able to recommence our activities in a safe way you can be assured play and our clubhouse will open.
Lastly, we would like to thank all our members, coaches, players, parents and those of you who support the club. Please keep safe and we will see you very soon we hope!
Clubhouse Our clubhouse is also now closed until further notice. However, our car park will continue to host the Mobile Testing Unit during the week. Please contact the government website if you need to book a test as Tewkesbury RFC cannot assist you in this process.
