Kicking off the season in style

Kicking off the season in style

The club was really buzzing today and it was great to see so many of our Tigers and their families join us for our Family Fun Day. All the rides were a big success and with Woodys woodfired pizzas and Pud Puds providing delicious pizza and ice creams the day was a big hit!
Big thankyou to our Sponsors Bps Builders Merchant who came down to hand out discount cards and water bottles to the children and also got roped in to announce our raffle draw (thanks guys for a great job).
See everyone tomorrow for the 1st day of the season start time 10.30pm start for everyone – 2nd hand kit shop will be open and help will be available for Player Affiiation on GMS.

Family Fun Day announced

All the fun of the fair is coming to Tewkesbury RFC for our Family Fun Day on Saturday 4 September between 11.00am and 2.00pm to kick off the new season in style. Take on the spinning disks of the Fun House, fly high on the chair o plane, or a spin in the tea cups or bounce in the trampoline beds and more ….and if you get a bit peckish then Woody’s will be on hand to serve a slice of delicious Pizza or try a yummy pudding from PudPud’s. The clubhouse bar will also be open for coffee, tea and a range of soft and alcoholic drinks!

Open to all our Tigers and their families who registered with us last season and to our new U6 and U7 members joining us this September. The rides are free to all children between the ages of 5+ – 16 but they do need to have a wrist band to be able to use the rides so pop into the clubhouse before you head to the rides to pick up your wristband and enjoy yourselves to as many rides as you’d like.

Inter club touch tournament

Inter club touch tournament

It’s been a while since our pitches saw any real action, and with the new season just weeks away it was a great opportunity for our players to get together for our club Touch Tournament.

Six teams entered the tournament, all drawn from a mix of juniors and seniors who came up with a selection of “team names” ! Ladies, Tom Wade Is Pride, Mike Oxmall, Patriots, F.O.S and Gold Member. All the games were closely contested with F.O.S overall winners and Gold Members runners up. Bad luck to the Patriots who pushed hard, we wish them luck in finding the right leadership for the next competition 😂 but it’s the taking part that counts and everyone did brilliantly!

It was great to see so many people there to cheer everyone on so thank you to everyone who came along to lend your support. We’d also like to send a special thank you to referees Steve Cooper and Robbie Davies who went above and beyond and to Lesley for your help too!
