The RFU has shared further guidance for community rugby in England for the return to recreational team sport from Wednesday 2 December. This includes all friendly fixtures and training for males and females, Age Grade and adult, for all contact and non-contact rugby.
Organized outdoor rugby activity with approved adaptations for both match play and training is permitted across all three tiers from Wednesday 2 December. However, it is extremely important that players, coaches, match officials, volunteers, parents, carers, and facility providers continue to strictly follow both the UK Government’s latest COVID-19 guidance and RFU guidance to ensure we can continue our phased return to play. We are now at Stage E on the Return to Rugby roadmap. Our senior team training sessions will recommence from Wednesday 2nd December whilst our junior teams will return to training on Sunday 6 December 2020.
Our clubhouse, however, will remain closed whilst we remain in Tier 2. 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.
