This has become a successful annual event, where boys and girls from Pershore and the surrounding area get to come and try their hand at rugby at Pershore RFC’s free Fun Day.  The event is held at the club’s riverside grounds in Mill Lane, Wyre Piddle.  It’s hoped that we will leave many of the young players keen to come back for more. 

From 11am until 1pm children of all ages can drop in to the club and have a go at a range of rugby skills, for free, at hourly workshops led by qualified coaches and mini games, staged to give them a taste of whichever type of rugby took their fancy – traditional rugby union (15-aside or sevens) tag rugby for little ones, or the increasingly popular, non contact, touch rugby.   Bouncy castles, slides, tug-of-war and barbeque add to the fun, for children and parents alike.

Ben Andrews Chair of Pershore Juniors section said:  “We’re looking forward to another opportunity to introduce some more young people to different types of rugby – from little 5-year-olds, to 16-year-olds, they are all welcome to come and join in the fun.  We hope to see many of them come back again the Sunday afterwards for some more fun at training, from 10am – 12 noon.”

Anyone wanting to come and try rugby at Pershore can take advantage of the club’s offer of three free training sessions and for further information they can contact Ben Andrews on 07779 927 852 or e-mail
