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 re-opening

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.

Return to Rugby Roadmap

Return to Rugby Roadmap

The RFU have just published their  provisional plan for a phased return to full contact rugby. It’s wonderful to see light at the end of the tunnel and we are as delighted that clubs and players across the country  will soon be able to resume training and, subject to each step on government’s roadmap being achieved, progress towards contact fixtures and an exciting season of rugby for 2021/22 from September.

Please note the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap has been revised to follow steps on the government roadmap. Please therefore disregard previous versions and only share the new ‘green for go’ roadmap below. We have removed Stages B and C as they are no longer currently relevant due to changes in government restrictions.

While we are all incredibly excited about getting back out on the pitch, we should also be conscious of the need to build-up gradually after a long lay-off. The focus for all activity over the next three months will be on player retention and player safety.

Until Monday 29 March, unless you are an age grade player taking part in organised school or college rugby activity, we remain at Stage A on the Return to Rugby Roadmap. This means individuals are only allowed to exercise alone or with one other from another household.

Further details will be published as soon as we have them as to how we as a club will resume training, so please bear with us whilst we ensure that we can return to rugby as safely as possible for all involved.

Guinness 6 Nations Prediction Competition

Guinness 6 Nations Prediction Competition

Join in our Guinness Six Nations Prediction Competition.  The competition kicks off this weekend with the first match taking place at 2.15 pm on Saturday.  No entry fee and no prizes but lots of fun to see who can get closest.

The Rules

  • To predict the margin for each game in the Guinness 6 Nations 2021 competition.
  • Points will be added to each prediction depending on how close you are to the final score.
  • If you get a match score correct, no points will be added to your total.
  • For example, if you predict TEAM A to win by 1 point but they win by 2 points, you will score 1 point. If Team A lose by 2 points, you will score 3 points and so on.
  • At the end of the competition the winner will be the entrant with the lowest number of points scored..

Guide for entering your predictions  You need to predict what the points difference will be for each match. For instance, if you think England (as the home team) will beat Wales by 15 points you should enter +15 in the box.  

If you think Wales (as the away team) will beat England by 10 points you should enter -10.

If you think it will be a draw game, enter 0 in the box.

Your points are calculated by counting the difference between your predicted score and the actual score of each game.   An updated table will be published after each round of fixtures, on the Thursday after latest.

Closing date Saturday 6 February 12 noon

Annual General Meeting Postponement

Annual General Meeting Postponement

Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting scheduled to take place in early 2021 has been postponed until June 2021(estimated). Whilst we recognize that this is disappointing for our members we must comply with current Covid guidelines, but of course, we will continue to monitor the situation and update you on any changes.

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.
