Coronavirus (COVID-19) Club Updates

National Lockdown Clubhouse & Rugby Update…

Happy New Year one and all!

I hope you had a great Christmas, whatever strange shape it was in.

Firstly a massive thank you to everyone who has supported the club in what continues to be the most challenging of times. So if you brought a can of pop, a tin of beer, a bacon roll, a cup of tea or a bottle of gin or rum on behalf of the bar, thank you!

Many of you may be aware that just prior to Christmas the decision was taken to cancel all rugby activities at Oval Park. This was a particularly bitter pill to swallow as a lot of people had put a huge amount of effort in to getting things up and running for both the senior and the mini/junior sections. That decision was taken looking at all the evidence that was being put forward with regard to the changing nature of the current pandemic.

The situation has now obviously been taken out of our hands as we are now into our third national lockdown. We will be monitoring the situation with regard to mini/junior rugby and will be reviewing all the advice and legislation given by the Government, as it stands the earliest this review will take place is after the 15th of February.

This will be an ongoing process of monitoring the situation over the following months and we will take the necessary decisions as the advice and guidance changes.

Take care and please be assured the club will do all it can to get us back up and running and back to playing the sport we love, whilst we do our best keep you safe.

Good evening all,
Following  the advice of the Government and the RFU, who have suspended all rugby ,we have no other course of action open to us other than to cancel all scheduled events for the foreseeable future
This includes all rugby, finals, tours and I am afraid private hires and potentially the Spring Ball. This is not a decision that has been made lightly however we have to consider the safety of everyone on and off the pitch.
Could you please communicate the same to all coaches, managers and players

To all OWRFC members and supporters.
Unfortunately due to the increased risk posed by COVID-19 and the restrictions placed on gatherings and events by the UK government , the Committee have reached a decision to postpone this year’s Presentation Day.
We hope to reschedule the event later this year and will pass on information concerning dates and times once these are finalised and updates will also be posted to our club website http://www.oadbywyggs.com/
In the meantime we will continue to monitor the situation and follow all advice from the Government as well as the RFU in relation to remaining fixtures, finals and visiting touring sides.
There is at this stage no decision regarding the Spring Ball and we will be reviewing our options with our suppliers ahead of making any changes to the current date.
The bar remains open as usual although we will again review this should there be any instruction from the Government in respect of opening /  closing restrictions and we urge you to continue to support the club.
