Premiership-winning pair Freddie Burns and Harry Potter will be attending next week’s Tigers Rugby Camp at Market Harborough RFC.

The Leicester Tigers duo will be dropping in to the camp midweek to meet attendees and answer their questions about life as a professional rugby player, how they reached the heights of Premiership Rugby and share tricks of the trade on how to improve.

Attendees will also get the chance to take home a Tigers rugby ball signed by Burns and Potter, as well as snap a selfie with the players alongside the Gallagher Premiership Trophy.

Meanwhile, England 7s international Joe Browning and fellow Tigers youngster Morgan Meredith will be joining youngsters taking part in the Camp at Stafford RFC - where the trophy will be on Thursday, August 11. 

Tigers Rugby Camps are aimed at girls and boys, from under-7s upwards, with the focus on skills development in a fun and physically active setting with professional coaches from the Tigers community team.

Delivery is split into four categories to provide the best possible experience throughout the age-groups:

Tag Rugby Camps provide a contact-free introduction to rugby for the under-7 and under-8 age-groups, with games and activities over three mornings to help develop fundamental movement, rugby and social skills.

Core Camps run over 4-5 full days for the under-9s to under-13s age-groups with sessions based on fun activities, rugby skills and fundamental fitness.

Development Camps sessions are for under-14, 15 and 16 players on three afternoons with a sharper focus on tactical and technical skills alongside athletic development, based on the themes of the Tigers Junior Academy and ACE college programmes.

Girls-Only Camps are suitable for all abilities in the under-13, 15 and 18 groups to develop skills, confidence and game awareness.

Places are available to book online, or phone the Tigers ticket office team on 0116 319 8888 (option 2).
