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.
