Pitch plan for Sunday 7 January 2018 - RUGBY IS BACK!

Hi all

After a long Christmas break rugby returns to Barham Road this Sunday (10am sharp remember!). A busy day with the U14s hosting Richmond.

Here's to a great second half of the season!

The club's First XV host Redruth on Saturday. Looking for their second win of the season they'd appreciate lots of home support. KO is 2pm this Saturday (6 Jan).

Wimbledon RFC - proud to support Age Grade codes of practice and RFC core values

We've updated our website with links to the seven codes of practice that underpin Age Grade Rugby: the set of principles that govern how all rugby should be coached and played from U6-U18. See more: http://wmrfc.co.uk/rfucorevalues

Great quote from Eddie Jones on Age Grade Rugby's codes

"Being more player-centred means that the focus is on potential rather than current ability and that the emphasis is on enjoyment and encouraging a life-long love of rugby. As our research shows, for children, enjoyment is more important than winning; especially if it means they get to play with their friends.

Prioritising winning is not what children want and does not fit with the ethos of Age Grade rugby."

Another great quote from Eddie Jones (with apologies to our Kiwi friends...)

“Sorry, I meant to say two sh**ty little islands.” Eddie Jones, England rugby union head coach, when asked to apologise for calling New Zealand “a sh**ty little island off the south coast of Australia".

Wishing you all a Happy New Year. Rugby resumes Sunday 7 January 2018.

Wimbledon RFC at Wimbledon Park Primary

The Year 5 and Year 6 children of Wimbledon Park Primary School were the latest to benefit from “Wimbledon RFC in the Community” when coaches from the club recently spent a day at the school giving rugby taster sessions to over 200 boys and girls as part of the school’s “Health and Wellbeing Week.” In partnership with Zion Sports, the programme aims to encourage and develop new players from non-traditional rugby playing schools, with the coaches drawing on the experiences gained both as players but also from their Sunday mornings with Wimbledon’s Mini and Youth organisation.

Pitch plan 19 November 2017

Contrary to the pitch plan below, it's the U11s on parking; no cake sale this week. Have a lovely Sunday and let's hope England put on a better performance against the Aussies than they did against the Pumas.

Dates for your diary: youth Christmas party is 3 December (U12-U18); minis is 17 December (U6-U11 and Inclusive). Please make sure your team managers know if you are going to the Christmas parties to help with catering etc.
