The RFU yesterday announced that the phased return of community rugby can move from Stage C to Stage D from Tuesday 1st September. Stage D means that we are able to start limited and restricted contact rugby training and organise inter-club non-contact fixtures. The reinstatement of some contact activity is important to ensure players can continue to practice core skills and can start to prepare as the game starts to return to normality with regular training and matches.
The club and all our coaches are working hard to ensure that these changes can be incorporated into training plans whilst ensuring that we continue to follow government Covid-19 guidance.
STAGE D ACTIVITY
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Tewkesbury RFC was due to be held during August 2020. However, in response to the limitations on gatherings of people due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Management Committee intends to postpone this event. We will continue to monitor the situation carefully and will issue our members with details of a revised date for the AGM as soon as it is practicably possible.
Tewkesbury Tigers are helping to create a real splash of colour in the town by supporting Tewkesbury in Bloom this summer. You can see our lovely tub outside Zitto’s restaurant.
Tewkesbury has won many awards over the years including Gold medals between 2010 and 2017. They have been awarded the Best in Category award (Town division) in 2014 and 2017 in the Regional Heart of England competition. In 2015 and 2018 they competed in the National competition. In 2017 they were filmed for the BBC2 documentary Britain in Bloom aired in Spring 2018.
We are very happy to be able to support this great project.
