Clubhouse reopening update

Clubhouse reopening update

UPDATE: Following our post in March regarding when we would be able to open the clubhouse and provide a bar service to our members, work is progressing in terms of providing an initial temporary as well as a permanent cellar solution to allow us to re-open by the middle of May. However, for this to happen we are dependant on suppliers, but meetings are taking place over the next week after which we will be able to give everyone a more realistic timescale. If anyone has any questions or comments please send us an email. In the meantime thank you for your patience and more importantly your support!

Training pitch undergoes new drainage

Training pitch undergoes new drainage

Ecosol Turfcare have done a great job this week carrying out some much needed drainage to our training pitch, which will allow it to be used more for training and coaching, reducing the impact of the game pitches. It will also ensure that as many arranged fixtures can go ahead, even in the wettest conditions. The work has been able to take place thanks to a Tewkesbury Borough Council fund that we were able to apply for within the Town and Country Planning Act that helps provide infrastructure improvements.

Clubhouse reopening update

Clubhouse re-opening

With expectations now growing of outside hospitality returning in April we wanted to share with members our plans to re-open the Clubhouse.
Many of you are aware of the cellar flooding issues we have experienced in the past and with the cellar flooding once again in lockdown, the Management Committee made the decision to look at a new cellar solution that would not inhibit our ability to operate in the event of future flooding. We are now working on a project to move the location of the cellar so we can look towards opening when Government restrictions allow inside drinking and we can bring draft beers online.
We know that this is disappointing, but we are working hard to ensure we can get up and running as soon as we can. We are committed to keeping everyone informed and will post regular updates as we progress. Thank you to all our members for your continued support!
Back in action!

Back in action!

It’s been a bit of a stop start season so far, but at long last the RFU have given grassroots Rugby the green light to start training again. Our men, women, junior boys and girls as well as walking rugby will all be back in action from Monday 29 March when hopefully we can finish the season at the end of May with the possibility of a few games taking place!

If you are interested in joining Tewkesbury RFC then please just send us an email or complete one of our contact forms so that we can arrange for you to pop down and start a trial.

Unfortunately our Clubhouse remains closed under the current government guidelines until the middle of May but will be dependant on guidance at the time.  We will keep everyone up to date with progress.

The RFU announced on Friday 6 March their return to rugby roadmap, which has been developed alongside the government's roadmap. From Monday 29th March our men, women, juniors and walking rugby will resume training to Stage D1 on the roadmap and will follow the different stages providing RFU and government guidelines allow us to do so. To view training times please see our training schedule on our home page.
Our clubhouse remains closed until such time as the Government confirm that hospitality may open. In addition work is being undertaken to relocate our cellar which has suffered damage from flooding, which may delay opening. We recognize that this is hugely disappointing for everyone, but as soon as we are have more information we will share with our members.
