Thanet Wanderers RUFC Community Open Day promises fun for all the family
Thanet Wanderers Rugby Club is holding a Community Open Day on Sunday 1st September 11am-3pm at its St Peters Ground in Broadstairs.
Sponsored by London Array, the event is a celebration of the club and its role in the community, providing sporting opportunities to all ages throughout Thanet. The club wants to promote the game to new potential players and spectators.
Club Vice Chairman, Chris Marson said: “Our Community Open Day will be a fantastic opening to the new rugby season and will celebrate the club’s achievements both on and off the pitch. Every week we have over 350 men, women, boys and girls aged 5 to 65 regularly playing rugby and we welcome anybody who wants to give the game a go, whatever their age or ability.”
Thanet South MP Laura Sandys will open the event, presenting the trophy to the national plate winning Under 17 squad. This will be followed by further presentations to teams and individuals.
There will be a host of rugby related activities and games during the day, including a family touch rugby tournament, in which teams must include a junior (10-18 years), female and a non player. There will also be rugby masterclasses, a kicking competition, horse carriage rides, pony rides, music, entertainment and food.
Charlotte Prett from sponsors London Array said: “London Array is proud to sponsor Thanet Wanderers. We share the club’s real commitment to the local Thanet community and we look forward to being part of an exciting season with this vibrant rugby club.”
