Junior Rugby Tour to Southern Holland: Maidenhead RFC U15
On their junior rugby tour to Holland the players from Maidenhead RFC U15’s chose a three-night tour based on the outskirts of Tilburg in the South of Holland, in one of our most popular holiday parks which boasts a wide range of attractions for all ages. The lively town nearby with its host of cafes, restaurants, bars and excellent nightlife that continues well into the night was available to the older members of the group should they wish to venture out of the park.
The group participated in the Spakenburg Rugby Festival open exclusively to teams booked through Burleigh Travel. Here they played games against Welsh, English and Dutch sides and Maidenhead won a hard fought final against Avonmouth. Once the after match celebrations were complete the teams were transferred back to their accommodation to continue their celebrations.
The group also played a second fixture against RC The Bulldogs which they won convincingly and as a reward were allowed to visit the nearby capital Amsterdam in the afternoon. The group had time free to explore this fascinating city once the after match hospitalities were completed.
The group’s final day was free to recover from the previous days rugby and one of the options offered to the party was a trip to Holland's famous 'Efteling Theme Park' before the group made their way home to England.
The Maidenhead group were a credit to their club and ambassadors for overseas tours and a memorable tour was had by all.
