The time has come: Revenge finally possible; excess Pimms certain….
THE OLD GIRLS VARSITY MATCH
For possibly the first time – or at least, the first time in a long time – OUWRFC and CUWRFC legends of years past will be taking each other on in a heated summer battle. Come and watch – or, even better, play – as old rivalries are revived, and old scrum-caps hastily located.
We want you! It doesn’t matter whether you’ve been playing every day since you graduated, or if you haven’t picked up a rugby ball since uni. There will be rolling subs, so there’s no excuse not to play even for 5mins (and after all, it’s worth it to get payback on that [Dark/Light] Blue girl who high-tackled you all those years ago…!).
Entry is £10 per player (covering food, facilities, physio, and the ref). Please drop a line to your respective club contact below if you’re interested:
– Cambridge: Katie Holmes (firstname.lastname@example.org)
– Oxford: Mairi Robertson (email@example.com)
Registration to play closes on 22 June – but please sign up via your club contact ASAP so we know numbers!
All are welcome and encouraged! (That’s anything from old girls and old boys to ‘just old’ and none of the above).
What better way to spend a sunny Saturday in July than by watching the Oxford and Cambridge old girls take on one another – and, critically, themselves. All whilst you can enjoy a sunny picnic and a Pimms or three, courtesy of Wimbledon RFC’s cheap bar.
We’ll be taking a gold coin donation from supporters on the day as a way of raising money for current players.
– Food and bar will be available in the clubhouse from 1pm, throughout the day
– Kick-off at 2pm
– On-going festivities and fun late into the evening
