Before the latest lock down at the end of October, the popularity of Tuesday night Training Sessions delivered by Club Coach Hendry Rheeders followed by Fitness Sessions on Thursday nights was maintained throughout.
For the first time since last March, the Clubroom was opened up for members to watch the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Final on Saturday 24 October all in accordance with RFU Guidelines on Social Distancing. Whilst Wasps were narrowly beaten this was compensated for by the flow of beer and lager served to tables of six.
Such was the success of the event, it was repeated for the following Saturday when the triple header of the Autumn Nations Cup was held. The warm up match starting at 2:00pm saw the Scots forge a win in Llanelli. This was followed up with the main event of the day seeing England cruise to a win at Twickenham and finally, France taking the Irish apart in Paris. Needless to say, with an eight hour drinking window, several barrels were emptied!
Did you know?
Harbury RFC now offer touch rugby for girls (aged 14+) and ladies through their Partner club Wellesbourne Ladies (WL). The ladies team joined Harbury in Summer 2019 & have substantially grown in number, now boasting 48 members aged 14 – 58.
What is touch rugby?
Touch is a minimal contact sport that combines fitness & fun. There is no tackling. Instead players touch their opponents using their hands. Teams consist of 6 players on the pitch at any one time with rolling subs. Games are 14 minutes long with 7 minute halves. WL are always on the lookout for new players. NO experience needed. They will teach you all the basic skills such as passing, learning the rules and basic drills.
Why should you join?
WL are dedicated to offering our community a club, which attracts girls/women of all ages, an opportunity to join a fun social team where they can learn a new sport in a ladies only environment. We want women to know that it is never too late to learn a new sport and to help build their confidence and fitness. Our club ethos of having a positive, inclusive and supportive environment that encourages everyone’s abilities has been key to their growth.
