Pershore's Junior Fun Day a success

18 October 2012

  • Worcestershire club open doors to county youngsters
  • Pershore aim to boost playing strength

More than 60 youngsters gave rugby a try at successful free Junior Rugby Fun Day staged by Pershore at their Wyre Piddle headquarters last Sunday.

The club’s riverside ground was open from 11am to 3pm giving youngsters of all ages the chance to drop in and try a range of rugby skill activities and workshops led by qualified coaches.

The Fun Day gave the youngsters – boys and girls – the chance to try contact rugby and two non-contact versions of the sport, tag and touch.

Pershore hope that many of the youngsters who visited during the Fun Day will have been sufficiently enthused about rugby to become regular players at the Worcestershire club.

“We were blessed with a fabulous sunny day and it was a joy to see so many young people having a go at all types of rugby – from little five-year-olds, to 16-year-olds, taller than me,” said Pershore spokesman Ben Andrews.

“I can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday morning and we look forward to seeing many of the youngsters, who came today, again next Sunday for some more fun at training, from 10am – 12 noon.”
