Tewkesbury Tigers – Get your Shirt On!

We might not be able to train together but you can still “Get your shirt on” by taking part in the RFU’s online training sessions run by former England players Ugo Monye, Danielle Waterman and Danny Care.

Over the next 3 weeks, you can choose a session from the three sessions:  Session 1 U10’s and below, Session 2 U11’s – U14’s and Session 3 U15’s and above.  With community rugby currently at Stage A on the Return to Rugby roadmap, it’s important for players to continue to stay active, even if it’s from home so come on Tigers “Get your Shirts On”.

Our players are loving our new fitness training!

Our players are loving our new fitness training!

Since the introduction of the RFU Return to Rugby programme, some of our teams have been able to take part in some fitness training, which has been put together by our Coaches.  We’ve had our Under 11, Under 14, Under 15, Under 16 and Under 17’s taking part, and it’s proved to be incredibly popular.   Our youngsters have really got into the spirit and have been brilliant at social distancing and sticking to the rules. 

In the coming weeks, we are hoping to introduce more of our youngsters with the Girls Under 13, 15, and 18’s due to start soon. 

We continue to remain at Stage B of the RFU Return to Rugby programme.

Update: Plans for re-opening our facilities

Update: Plans for re-opening our facilities

With many facilities around the country due to open this coming weekend, we are very aware that people will be asking what the situation is with our own clubhouse. The committee has reviewed the present Covid-19 guidelines and has now developed the following plans to open our club’s facilities in the weeks and months ahead.

With so many of our players keen to resume training, our focus so far has been aimed at starting training sessions, in line with the RFU Return to Rugby programme, for our senior and junior teams, and details of training sessions are available from the team coaches. Some of our junior teams have already taken part in training and our seniors have also been back training, so it’s great to see some action and the detailed plans we put into place working well and keeping everyone safe.

Our next focus is to open the bar for our club members, and whilst we understand everyone’s hopes of re-opening it is not a simple process and many new systems will need to be put in place to ensure the safety of staff, volunteers and members and this will take time. Given that we do not anticipate opening before 27 July or possibly later.

At present all other events have been postponed for July and August.

The committee is now meeting every two weeks and is working hard to make sure we can put in place everything we need to open the clubhouse once again, we know that not opening on the 4 July will cause disappointment, but we must all be mindful that our priority must be to ensure everyone’s safety so we would ask you to bear with us.

Tuesday 5 January 2021
Following the government's announcement yesterday that the country and indeed Gloucestershire would move from Tier 4 to Tier 5 with immediate effect, this now means that both adult training/matches and all age-grade rugby training and matches is canceled until further notice.
Our clubhouse remains closed whilst we remain in Tier 5. However, we are accepting bookings for social events in our clubhouse with the caveat that bookings will very much depend on the situation at the time of the event and we reserve the right to cancel.
We recognize that this is hugely disappointing for everyone, but as soon as we are permitted to do so you can be assured that we will open our clubhouse to our members.
