Festival Welcome

Welcome to the Tunbridge Wells RFC festival sponsored by our good friends at Markerstudy group.

By way of introduction I am Mike Rigby the youth chair here at TWRFC and today’s tournament director.

We are really pleased to welcome you to St Mark’s for a day of rugby which we hope will be a shining example of the values of rugby: Teamwork; Respect; Enjoyment; Discipline; Sportsmanship. To help us achieve this I encourage:

  • All players to play with a Smile on your face, give it everything you’ve got, remember all your coaches wise words and win or lose shake your opponents hands.
  • All parents please be as noisy as you like with cheering, words of encouragement and support for both sides.
  • All refs, do your best, we know you are volunteers and will support every one of your decisions!

We have over 110 teams competing today which means over 1,000 players. We have lots of places to keep them refreshed, fed and watered. Please make use of all of them and if you have any questions please just ask any of the TWRFC home team or come and ask me.

Have a great day and thank you for supporting our festival,


Mike Rigby
