Rugby Development Festivals

In December 2021, we had 2 Team Leicestershire Rugby Development Festivals at Oadby Wyggestonian R.F.C. Thank you and congratulations to everyone that took part, it was amazing to see everyone enjoying themselves and showing great sportsmanship.

There was well over 400 young people involved across the two events so both U13 and U15 age groups were well represented in both genders. We had some young people who had never played before and others who had more experience, so it was great to see everyone helping each other and making the events enjoyable for all. Some teams who were playing contact rugby, played touch rugby if their opponents weren't comfortable playing contact and all the games had a good mix of being competitive but still upholding the development festival ethos. There was a lot of development on the two days with teams progressing from touch rugby to contact rugby and everyone was really engaging with the Leicester Tigers coaching staff.

Many thanks also to Oadby Wyggestonian R.F.C for hosting us and Leicester Tigers for supporting with organisation & staff.

We hope everyone enjoyed the festival and hopefully we can do it all again later in the academic year!
