Meet our Chairman

Tewkesbury Tigers 


As Chairman of the Tewkesbury Tigers, I would like to welcome you to the junior section of our rugby club.

Today we offer rugby training and coaching for young players from ages 6 to 17 every Sunday morning and some teams train in the early evenings during the week.  The main emphasis for the Junior section will always be fun, to encourage the children to want to come back to rugby every week. However, as a club, we also enforce the RFU core values. TREDS =Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline, and Sportsmanship.

You will be pleased to see how this rugby ethos is quickly picked up by the children as they develop leadership, team spirit and a sense of fair play.

We are a volunteer club and as such it’s not only the children we want to involve, we encourage parents to take an active part in their children’s rugby by joining the coaching staff (training and courses are available), support staff (team manager, helping coaches, committee positions, etc.). You will find, the more involvement you have, the more rewarding the experience for you, and your children.

If you would like more information about how your child can start playing at the club or would like to volunteer, please send us an email and we will be in touch. We are always happy to welcome new members into the Tewkesbury family. So, come and join us and find out why we are such a special club.

5 November 2020 Parliament yesterday voted in favour of the Government’s national lockdown proposals aimed at curbing the increase in Covid-19 cases in England, which take effect from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December. In addition, the Government has announced the cessation of all community team sports during this period, which applies to Age Grade and Adult rugby activities below Championship and Premier 15s. This means that all our activities have stopped.
With effect from 5 November 2020, we return to Stage A on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap. This means that no competitive or formal rugby activities can be undertaken until at least Wednesday 2 December.
The RFU will now review what the implications of this national lockdown plan mean for clubhouses, schools, colleges, universities, etc., and will provide more detailed information in the Covid-19 Community Game Update.
We recognize that this is hugely disappointing for everyone, but as soon as we are able to recommence our activities in a safe way you can be assured play and our clubhouse will open.
Lastly, we would like to thank all our members, coaches, players, parents and those of you who support the club. Please keep safe and we will see you very soon we hope!
Clubhouse Our clubhouse is also now closed until further notice. However, our car park will continue to host the Mobile Testing Unit during the week. Please contact the government website if you need to book a test as Tewkesbury RFC cannot assist you in this process.
