Slough RFC at Cippenham Carnival
The club stall was at Cippenham Carnival for the first time over the weekend for an extremely hot, but hopefully productive, afternoon promoting the club.
Britwell Summer Celebration
Slough RFC joined the celebrations at Britwell's annual summer fete on Saturday to promote the club to the local community :)
Cippenham Primary School sports week
Slough RFC was pleased to be able to provide 4 coaches to support Cippenham Primary School sports week this week.
Mary Blumbergs and Callum Gray attended the school on Thursday to give rugby sessions to years 3 and 4 whilst Martin Tilby and Sandie Belcher took years 5 and 6 on Friday. The coaches introduced approx. 600 pupils to club rugby over the two days.
The children all seemed to enjoy themselves and our coaches did a grand job of representing the club :) Many thanks to the staff and pupils at Cippenham Primary School for making us feel welcome.
Slough RFC Beer Festival
Slough RFC beer festival made its return this year welcoming approx 200 club members and friends for an afternoon of beer and fun.
Ryvers School fete
Slough Rugby Club attended Ryvers School fete on Saturday to promote the club to pupils and parents at the school.
Our Throwing Challenge stall proved a popular attraction with many students wearing one or more of our wristbands by the end of the day, and a good number kicking and throwing about the mini rugby balls they had won at our stall.
Overall a successful day and a welcome opportunity to get involved in one of our local schools. We hope to welcome some of the pupils, families and staff to the club in the new season.
A big thank you to Sebastian for his help.
Iver Heath Junior School summer fair
Saturday saw Slough Rugby Club attend Iver Heath Junior School summer fair. An enjoyable afternoon was had with a good number of boys and girls and parents taking our Throwing Challenge and asking for more information about the club.
It was a really good opportunity to get into one of our local schools to promote the club. A big thank you to U9s Thomas for his help with running the stall on the day.
SSSN Tag Rugby Festival
A sunny but chilly day saw almost 300 boys and girls descend on Tamblyn Fields for the annual primary school’s tag rugby festival yesterday.
The tournament, organised by Slough School Sports Network, saw the children play in a round robin of matches, ably refereed by pupils from a local secondary school.
There was some excellent rugby on display and every child received a well-deserved certificate and medal at the end of the day.
