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.

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 are 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.
