Clubhouse reopening: Saturday 5 Sept

As the RFU announce the community game has moved to Stage D of its national return to rugby roadmap, we're delighted to announce the re-scheduled re-opening of the clubhouse for club members only this coming weekend.

The bar has been refurbished and will re-open on 

      - Saturday 5 September between 1.30pm - 6.00pm, and

      - Sunday 6 September between  11.00am - 3.00pm

It would be great to see all of you there.

The new normal

In order to deal with the safety aspects associated with Covid-19, we’ve had to adopt the following rules to provide a low risk environment for our Staff and patrons.

1.   Masks MUST be worn when entering the clubhouse. This is to facilitate our policy of one-meter plus (1m+) social distancing so we can serve two people at the bar.

2.    Upon arrival please register your details at the entrance using the QR code provided. If you don’t have a smart phone then use the sign-in sheet provided.

3.    The Club will operate a one way system in the club.  Access is via the main entrance and exit is by the fire door leading to the first team pitch.



4.    Drinks are ordered to the right hand side of the bar and collected at the left hand side.  We are using a socially distancing queuing system to ensure people remain 1m+ apart. 

5.    Only two people will be served at a time from the main bar.

6.    All payments must be cashless. No membership cards can be used for payment, although your membership card number can be used to access funds already present. The membership card must be shown prior to ordering.

7.    There will be  no drinking within the club  at this time and once drinks are purchased you should exit via the fire door.

8.    Floor markings will be provided to help guide people on where to stand.

9.    During this time we will serve drinks in the recyclable plastic cups with no deposit required.

10. We ask that all cups are returned into the green recycling bin(s) provided. Please do not return them to the bar.

11.  During this time the only people behind the bar will be bar staff and we are unable to store items for anyone behind the bar.

12.  The toilets will be open and we ask that you socially distance while using the facilities, see signs on the toilet doors for details.

13.  Hand sanitisers have been provided in the club and we ask that you use them on entry and exit from the clubhouse and toilets.

14. Anyone with any Covid-19 symptoms MUST NOT ENTER the Club House.

15.  Once outside please socially distance to two metres if not wearing masks and keep within the latest Government guidelines for group gatherings.


 We understand that this not what we are used to in our Rugby Club, but please help us by following the rules and keeping everyone safe.
