Wanstead took a group of 50 people away on Rugby Tour a mixture of players and their parents. They went on one of our new Rugby events the South Yorkshire Challenge. This weekend is designed to do something different on Rugby Tour instead of being on a caravan site they were based at the Kingswood Dearne Valley Activity Centre, where they have had a tailored itinerary full of activities and meals times for the whole weekend, so the kids always have something to do and are never bored.
On Friday, Wanstead arrived to take part in the first activity which was crate stacking. This activity is great to get the team working together as they are tasked with building as biggest tower as possible out of crates to support two team members who are balanced on top of this tower. After their second activity they are scheduled into dinner on site. This is perfect for the groups as it takes the hassle away of having to find somewhere for the group to eat out and accommodate the size of the group.
On the Saturday, Wanstead had a full day of activities out in the beautiful hot sun. Some of the activities were Laser Tag, Areoball, Orienteering, Archery, a Mini Olympics and Jacobs Ladder. In between these activities Wanstead were able to have Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Where there was a great variety of foods to cater for everyone’s needs. There was also an extra salad bar provided at Lunch and Dinner. At breakfast they also provided other cereals and yogurts for people that didn’t want the cooked option.
Sunday morning Wanstead RFC U13’s had their breakfast and picked up their pack lunch for the day and headed off to the Doncaster RFC for the Rugby Festival. The weather was brilliant on the Sunday and allowed the standard of rugby to really show through. Wanstead RFC U13’s had a brilliant day with a strong performance throughout, which showed as they won the tournament at their age group.
