Invitation to all coaches
We invite all head coaches and coaches along for a debrief on the season to date, things that are going well, areas we can improve, meet the other coaches at the club.

WHEN Wednesday 11th March, 7.45pm for an 8pm start at the clubhouse
THE PLAN 15 minute debrief and update, 20 minute break out group to discuss ideas/progress, 20 minute review and plan for next season. Followed by a beer at the bar to chat/catch up further.

Calling all girls
Our girls rugby squad has expanded at the club and is growing strongly. They are now on a great recruitment drive to draw more players to the club, connecting with local schools. They have a taster rugby session coming up soon at Wimbledon and it would be great if you can spread the word to those girls who may be connected to the club however not tried rugby before. It will be on Sunday the 1st March.

Pitch plan Sunday 9 February 2020

Sadly we have to announce that all rugby (matches and training) is cancelled tomorrow - Sunday 9 February 2020. The weather forecast is increasingly wild so with so many visitors scheduled to play here tomorrow it has been decided to give notice that we are cancelling early to give people the chance to change their Sunday plans. See you all next week.

Wimbledon star and Welsh international smashes charitable donation target - Edwear and Headway.org.uk

Wooden Spoon Charity dinner at Wimbledon RFC - 28 February 2020

Wimbledon RFC is thrilled to be an official partner of the Wooden Spoon charity. Wooden Spoon is the children’s charity of rugby. Wooden Spoon funds life-changing projects that support children and young people with disabilities or living in disadvantage. Since 1983, they've funded more than 1,000 projects, across the UK and Ireland, totalling over £28 million.

Its focus is to help children and young people through projects such as sensory rooms, playground and outdoor activities, health and wellbeing and specialist equipment. More details are here.

To celebrate our new association with the charity the club is hosting a charity dinner on Friday 28th February 2020. We are selling tables of 9 at £35 per head to include a terrific prawns, fillet steak and toffee pudding dinner.

Plus John Inverdale is our guest (President of Wooden Spoon Surrey, BBC Radio & TV Sports Presenter and Chairman of Rugby at Esher RFC). Table service wine and beer will help prepare us for a charity auction, MC'd by John.

Book your place by emailing John Woods: johnwoods.wrfc@gmail.com.

Pitch plan 19 January 2020

The weather hasn't been too kind so we have had to rest some pitches and move people around from their usual locations. There's a slim chance there might be a pitch inspection on Saturday night/Sunday morning so please check back here and/or look out for emails from your age group manager in case there's a problem with playing on Sunday.

Under 11s are on parking duty; a reminder to everyone to listen to and respect any instructions the parking marshalls give you. The club has zero tolerance on disrespect and will invoke the club's disciplinary policy if needed.

Rugby's back this Sunday; wishing all club members and visitors a very Happy New Year!

Final call for any spare clothes, kit and equipment for charity: this weekend and next are our last two collections for the TAG Rugby Trust clothing. The boat with donations leaves mid January and it will be wonderful to see this kit arrive - Paul Goss hopes to share the video for the first set off stuff arriving that has Wimbledon RFC kit in it.

Please pass anything to the U12’s who will also be selling kit in the clubhouse.
