Leicester Tigers are putting together their biggest ever programme of Rugby Courses this summer.

Guinness Premiership champions Tigers kick off their programme close to home at Ratcliffe College from July 19-23.

There are further camps in Leicestershire at Oakham School (July 26-30), Coalville and Lutterworth rugby clubs (both August 9-13)

Further afield, Tigers will run a first ever course at Market Rasen and Louth RFC from August 16-20. There will also be camps at Stafford, Derby, Leamington, Swaffham, Burton, Sleaford and North Walsham rugby clubs and Stamford School.

The courses are supported by energy efficiency specialists Mark Group. They are aimed at players involved in contact rugby from under-nines through to under-16s. Everyone who attends will receive a free ticket to a first-team game at Welford Road, as well as a Tigers Rugby Course T-shirt, rugby ball and drinks bottle, plus a hot, healthy lunch each day and a personal assessment and feedback form.

Matt Williams, Tigers senior rugby development officer and EPDG Academy coach, said: “Demand for the courses is high and several are already close to being sold out.

“We are hopeful that some of the Tigers first-team squad will be able to take time out from their demanding summer training schedule to drop in and see what could be some of the Tigers stars of the future.”

Williams added: It couldn’t be easier to book your place and you can complete your application on the Tigers website www.leicestertigers.com/rugbycourses or, of you prefer, by contacting the community department directly.”

Mark Group, commercial director, Bill Rumble, said: “Rugby is a sport which can engage the whole family. By supporting the community programme, we are encouraging more and more children to get active and get excited about the game.”
