A massive thank you to Tommo for organising, to Wiggy for supporting, and to all the schools that attended our local schools rugby festivals over the past few weeks.

Tommo says

Our main aim was to get pupils from local schools playing more rugby and over the three festivals – for years 7, 8, and 9 – we have had 168 pupils take part. This is all down to the teachers who gave up their time to attend these events, so thank you!!!”

“As well as some very talented players on show and some good team performances, every pupil who I spoke to expressed how much they had enjoyed playing. The pleasing thing for me was seeing so many pupils who have never played rugby before, play and fall in love with the sport.”

We hope to continue with these festivals next term and get even more schools involved.

 Finally, we hope that players have taken an interest in playing rugby outside of school. We would be more than happy to welcome them to Charlton Park Rugby Club!
