A few words from the Chair, Nigel Wilson

This time, we are back for good – please!

We all look forward to Monday the 29th March with the hope that this time we are on an irreversible path back to life as we know it. Whether that is watching or wearing, we all need a little Black & Amber back in our lives.

As you can imagine, all sections of the rugby club (plus all the other users of Barnet Wood Road), are keen to get back out in the fresh air and to the place we all call ‘Home’. To whet your appetite, here is what is coming up in the next few weeks:

  • Tuesday 30th March – Senior rugby training starts.
  • Wednesday 31st March – Academy training starts.
  • From Saturday 3rd April – O2 Touch Rugby starts and will run every Saturday at 1pm. Open to all men and women, 16 years old and above. Free to all club members. Please click on the link in the O2 Touch App to get more details and register your attendance. Please make sure you use car park 3 for this event.
  • From Sunday 4th April – Mini & Junior training commences for certain age groups. Please check with your team manager for timings.
  • From Tuesday 13th April – June, and her wonderful team, will commence outside table service; subject to strict rules (please be prepared to stick to these because if you abuse it, we will lose it).
  • From Saturday 17th April – Jono will be onsite each Saturday with his ever-popular Braai.

Of course, we are part of a much wider Sports Club so you can expect to see plenty of other activities going on too. Here is what else to expect:

  • Monday 29th March – Rugby League training starts and they will have matches on Saturday mornings
  • Cricket will start Nets after Easter and have their first 2 home matches on the 1st May
  • The tennis courts can also be booked on an App. For details ring, Andrew McIver on 0208 289 5752 and the charge is £10 per hour. The Tennis Club is also running an Easter Camp for 11- to 17-year-olds over the Easter holidays. It will be fun with tennis, exercises and games. If you would like to join in, please contact their Coach Dennis Saunders on 07951 672 442.
  • The Ladies Fitness club will be keeping fit each Saturday Morning at 9:30. For more details please contact Marie on: mariewalker676@btinternet.com.

It promises to be a busy time at the club. Please respect all users of the facilities and I look forward to seeing you soon at one or more of the above activities.

Nigel Wilson, Chairman
