Watch England Rugby for free this month and generate revenue for us!

We’re encouraging all members, as well as your family and friends, to take advantage of a new offer created between the RFU and Amazon that lets you watch England Rugby for free in the Autumn Nations Cup, while also creating much-needed revenue for the club.

The Quilter Internationals kick off this Saturday and will be streamed online via  Amazon Prime. To help grassroots clubs generate revenue, Amazon has worked alongside the RFU to open up registration for clubs to become Amazon Associates.

This means the club will now receive £3 for every member of the community who signs up to Amazon on a free one-month trial through our club’s unique Associates link below.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU USE THIS UNIQUE LINK www.amazon.co.uk/gp/video/primesignup/ref=acph_piv?tag=tewkesburyrfc-21 to sign up for your free one-month trial, otherwise the club won’t benefit from your subscription.

There is no expectation for members to stay on Prime past the trial period. The club will make £3 from each individual sign-up via the unique link, regardless of whether the member stays on past the trial period or not.

Every little helps in these challenging times, so please spread this message and our unique URL link far and wide – friends, colleagues and neighbours are all welcome to sign up!

NEXT MATCH SATURDAY 14 NOVEMBER ENGLAND V GEORGIA 

Covid-19 and AGM Update

Covid-19 and AGM Update

Following the Government announcement on Saturday evening, England is due to go back into lockdown from 5th November until 2nd December.
 
We believe that all grassroots sports will cease as of midnight on Wednesday 3rd November and therefore any training after this date will stop until we receive further guidance from the RFU. As soon as the RFU issue any updates or new guidance we will share with you as soon as we can.
 
The lockdown, of course, also impacts the operations of our Clubhouse, so we will close on Wednesday evening until further notice. This also means that our scheduled AGM, due to take place on Saturday 14 November 2020, has now also been cancelled. We hope to reschedule our AGM for the early part of January.
 
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, players, parents and those of you who support the club. Please keep safe and we will see you very soon we hope!

New Junior Pitch starts to see some action!

New Junior Pitch starts to see some action!

It’s fantastic to see our Under 12’s pitch seeing some action.   Last year we applied for funding to allow us to expand the security fence currently around the ground which ensures the new pitch, built inside the new fence, provides enough playing area to allow all aged under 12’s players to play and train within a secure ground and make it possible to use the clubhouse facilities during their training period.

We would like to thank the following companies and trusts that made this possible.  Nat West, Enovert Trust, GCC, Renishaw, Summerfield Trust, Wheatpieces PC, Tewkesbury TC, 200 Club, Secura which included secure fencing, stone burying, soil relaying and laser grading, plus seeding which gives security and all the work the pitch needs to ensure it meets all the club’s needs for future years.

Floodlights ready for the dark evenings

Floodlights ready for the dark evenings

We would like to send a huge thank you to Luke Boskett and his team from GES (Gloucestershire Electrical Services) who came down to the ground this week to carry out some much need work to our floodlight system. Having the support of companies like GES means that we can continue to provide rugby to men, women, and children in Tewkesbury during the long dark winter months.   Thank you GES!

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.
