Tigers Trust deliver Rugby Festival in partnership with University of Hull +22nd September 2017
Yesterday, we delivered a rugby event in partnership with the University of Hull; to launch their new rugby facility.
We invited pupils from Sidmouth Primary Schoool, Spring Cottage Primary School, Eastfield Primary School, Biggin Hill Primary School Academy, Bilton Primary School and Neasden Primary School to take part. The event was split into a Year 3-4 competition and a Year 5-6 Competition.
The morning consisted of practice matches, a rugby coaching sessions and some fun rugby challenges and then the pupils took all the skills they had learnt into an afternoon tournament!
Congratulation to Eastfield Primary School for winning both the Year 5-6 competition and the Year 3-4, and congratulations to Runners Up; Bilton Primary School and Biggin Hill Primary School.
Richard Dexter, our PL Primary Stars Coordinator commented:
“The day was a real success. It was a great experience for the children being able to use the state of the art facility here at Hull University, and play competitive rugby against other schools. Children also had the opportunity to take part in individual skill based challenges, and receive quality rugby caching from the University’s Campus Sports team.
All involved seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves and plans are already underway for a similar event later in the year.”
A big well done to everyone for taking part, the standard of rugby and attitude of all the players was great and showed fantastic sportsmanship and teamwork.
We would also like to thank University of Hull Campus Sports team for assisting with the event and providing such a fantastic facility for the tournament.
