Timings for the start of the day

We'll be open from 8.30am with bacon butties and coffees to kick-start your day. Referee briefings take pace by the Wimbledon U9 control tent at 9.30am and matches kick-off at 10am sharp. Please arrive early as we must start on time!

Fastest pass in Surrey competition!

Please remember to bring some pound coins as we will be hosting the first ever "Fastest Pass in Surrey" challenge for both parents and kids, there are prizes to be won and more importantly the bragging rights at school, at your club or at work. Look out for the FunZone at the front of the club house.


WRFC U9s are running a fundraising raffle, with some epic prizes to be won. Some of the highlights are a Family ticket to BGT (4 people), 2 sets of Family tickets to Curzon for a film of your choice plus a Coldplay signed vinyl to boot!. Our volunteers will be doing the rounds on Sunday so look out for them and please dig deep!


In short, you'll need to be an early-arriver to park in one of the two club carparks. A few permits have been issued for Inclusive Rugby players and visiting head coaches (only - and once the spaces are gone, they're gone, sorry). If you have a blue badge there will also be parking at the club, please show yours to the marshalls at the junction of Copse Hill and Barham Road.

Once the club's carparks are full you will need to park on the public roads (marked green on the map). The later you arrive the longer your walk will be to the club. When walking you might find Google Maps helpful to navigate your way to the clubhouse (type in Wimbledon Rugby Club or postcode SW20 0ET).

There will be parent volunteers in hi-viz to help make the parking as stress-free as possible. Please listen to any parking instructions you are given - and respect that everyone marshalling the parking are parent volunteers. Wimbledon RFC is situated in the middle of a residential area with some of the roads being private roads so if you are asked not to park somewhere, please listen. The same goes with cones, if you see a street with cones on, don't park there.

Anyone blocking access to homes or restricting ambulance access will be reported to the police.

A key message from Sophie Castle, Wimbledon's child safeguarding officer

Remember, everyone (parents, coaches and players alike) must observe the RFU rules and spirit of play...namely

1. Support positively and applaud good play (even if it's not your team!)
2. Respect officials and opposition players
3. Remember that children are playing to have fun
4. Behave as good role models on the touchline
5. Congratulate the opposition and make their supporters welcome.

Hope you enjoy the festival and remember TREDS
