The RFU is calling on clubs and their local communities to join the ‘Pitch Up for Rugby’ weekend. Further details on the RFU website available here.
Beccs looks forward to welcoming everyone on Saturday 12th September back down to get involved in England Rugby’s ‘Pitch Up’ celebrations, now that clubs have been greenlit by the Department of Digital, Culture, media and Sport (DCMS) to play Ready4Rugby, an adapted non-contact game and O2 Touch.
"Pitch Up" will provide the perfect opportunity for players to return to the club and learn the RFU’s adapted gameplay Ready4Rugby and offers them chance to catch up and train with teammates, following an extended break due to the pandemic.
Extra health and safety measures have been introduced at the club and government updates will be monitored to provide a safe environment for participants. The overriding objective is that all sections of the club watch everyone else and are encouraged to stay down at the club for the afternoon.

You can continue with your activities and plans to celebrate players being back on the pitch this weekend."
