Pay your subs!
Please get your annual subs paid asap. Should all be easy enough online via England Rugby (RFU) Game Management System (GMS) - click here but Nick Wright the Treasurer will be on hand on Sunday at the clubhouse to help anyone that wants to do it in person. By the end of the month: no pay – no play.

Particularly relevant for older kids in youth squads, Matt Pickin (U15 girls head coach) has arranged for Opro to visit the club NEXT Sunday, 19 September, to take impressions etc. Note there's a 20% discount being offered to club members (Promo code = WIMRFC20). To benefit from this fitting at the club you need to go to https://www.opro.com/Catalogue/Mouthguard-Designs/School-and-Club-Design... and choose Wimbledon RFC, then choose "Impression Visit" amongst the other options, and then checkout. Don't forget to use the promo code! Remember, all kids from U9s upwards need mouthguards.

Get fit whilst your kids play rugby
Our community outreach team - Wimbledon in the Community - are running Boot Camps for adults starting this Sunday. There are two sessions: 9.45-10.45 and 11-12. More info here: https://www.wimbledoninthecommunity.com/book-a-class

If your kids are new to rugby? No problem
We run a Tag-only group for older boys and girls U10s-U13s who are new(er) to rugby and would like more support in learning tackling and other aspects of the game. Just turn up to the Tag Group shown on the pitch plan at 9.30 to find out more or email kidstag@wmrfc.co.uk

Touch rugby on Wednesday evenings for youth kids
Mark Essex, an U13 coach and Youth Director of Rugby, is running touch rugby training sessions from 6pm at the club for 1 hour. It is aimed at those kids that don’t play much or any school rugby. It is free of charge and aimed at U12-U15s but I’m sure anyone will be welcome. More info via dor@wmrfc.co.uk

Welcome to our new physio
There is a new physio at the club, Luke Bowen (07583 947466). He'll be building a team over the coming weeks. Welcome, Luke.

The car parks will be full by 9.20am - probably earlier. If you know you are arriving after this please park off-site and not on the private roads around the club. Here's our parking policy.

Great start for the 1st XV
Big win on the opening weekend for the 1st XV away at Tring. The link below has all of the tries and the club welcomes all parents and kids to come down and watch home games on Saturday afternoons. The next home game is this Saturday (11 September) against Maidenhead, 3pm kick off.


DBS checks for new coaches and those with expired DBSs
Our Child Safeguarding team - Sophie Castle and Kate Singleton - will be at the club this Sunday from 9am to do DBS checks for new coaches/anyone needing to renew. Details about which documents you need to bring are here: http://wmrfc.co.uk/childprot
