Hungerford Rugby Club is proud to be making rugby safe post-lockdown
We believe it is vital for young people’s physical and mental health to stay active and enjoy team sports and we’re delighted to announce the return of rugby to Hungerford from week commencing the 29th March 2021 under stage D1 guidance as set out by the RFU.
How to Join
New players are always welcome. If you would like to join or have any queries, please contact juniors secretary Lou Evans at email@example.com or 07917 058523.
Or please contact us via the club website hungerfordrfc.rfu.club/for more details prior to attending a session for the first time.
As a club we are following all guidelines to keep rugby safe for our players:
– each team has their own bag of balls which is soaked in a liquid sanitiser before they are touched. At the end of training the kids drop them back in the bag and they are sanitised again before going back in the store room.
– players are allowed up to 15 minutes of touch contact (no tag belts or tackling)
– players sanitise their hand pitch-side every 15 minutes and before leaving the pitch at the end of training.
And though protocols and RFU directives will make everything a little different to start with, we are hopeful that before too long we’ll be back to normal.
Of course, one thing remains constant: our commitment to ensure that every player is made welcome, everyone has fun and there’s game time for all. In junior and mini rugby it doesn’t matter how big the squad is – everyone gets to play. That’s the philosophy of the Rugby Football Union (the sport’s governing body) and it’s one that Hungerford Rugby Club are at the forefront of embracing.
