Full weekend of fun at Sidmouth RFC as return to action moves a step closer

Sidmouth Rugby Club is set to serve up a full weekend of fun after the game’s governing body ruled it can move a step closer to competitive action. 

The Rugby Football Union (RFU) said late last month that, from Tuesday, September 1, clubs can to start limited and restricted contact training and organise inter-club non-contact fixtures.

As a result, Sidmouth Chiefs have announced a big weekend of activities from Friday, September 11 to Sunday, September 13.

A busy weekend for the club is launched on the Friday (September 11) with ‘Seniors’ Fun’ all getting under way from 7pm.

It includes a social gathering, games and a barbecue, all taking place at Sidmouth RFC’s Blackmore home in Heydons Lane.

On the Saturday (September 12), again at the Blackmore, with a 1pm start, it’s ‘Pitch Up and Play’ which is set to be a ‘tough rugby’ event complete with barbecue. In attendance will be coaches from the colts and junior sections.

On the Sunday (September 13) there’s a 9.30am start for ‘Junior Rugby’ at the club’s Sidford base. On the same day, but back at the Blackmore from 2pm, it’s ‘Girls Training’.

A busy weekend will be rounded off with a showing on the big screen TV in the Blackmore clubhouse of the Exeter Chiefs versus Saracens match which kicks-off at 4.30pm.
