Senior Rugby - book your slot for a training 'bubble'

Published on Monday, 20 July 2020

Senior Rugby - book your slot for a training 'bubble'
. We are now entering our third week of senior training.  Any club member aged 18 and over is very welcome to attend.

In order to comply with RFU and government guidance relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, some new measures have been put in place:


1)     Training now takes places in ‘bubbles’ of 6, starting at 15 minute intervals to the previous bubble, with the first bubble starting at 19:00 and the final bubble starting at 20:15.


2)     All attendees are required to maintain social distancing of 2m throughout the session.


3)     There will be limited sharing of equipment, and any shared equipment will be sterilized after training.


4)     All attendees are required to bring their own water bottle, carrying it with them throughout training, and bring a bottle of hand sanitizer if they have it.


5)     Club facilities remain closed, and therefore there is no access to changing rooms or showers.


6)     A booking system, kindly prepared for the club by Go Big Digital, has been introduced to register attendance, in case track and trace is required.  The booking system can be accessed through the following link https://gobig-digital.co.uk/hrc-booking.  To ensure all bubbles contain 6 people as planned, please:

 a.      Make your bookings at least 2 hours in advance of training (note: some sessions have been fully booked, so it is advisable to make your booking as far in advance as possible).

 b.      If you need to cancel your booking, notify James Akrill (07505122975) as soon as possible, and at least 2 hours in advance of training, so we can potentially re-book your session.

Finally – if you are feeling unwell, or displaying any symptons of Covid-19, please protect your team mates by getting in touch and steering clear from training.


Between 30 and 40 players have attended each training session so far.  Sessions have focused on speed, stamina and passing skills thus far, and more Rugby elements will be introduced, as we progress through pre-season and as RFU guidance allows.

If you have yet to join us at training, you are very welcome and we would love to see you. Do not fret if you feel unfit or off the pace; we accommodate all fitness and ability levels at all training sessions.  So please make a booking and get rugby fit, together with your fellow Hedgehogs!
