General Rugby Festival Information
Welcome to the Inaugural “7’s on the Farm” where you will be able to start your season in style with a team visit to the unique setting of Croft Farm Waterpark, where you can enjoy a fantastic weekend experience to reward all your group over the summer break! There will be plenty of rugby, plenty of food and plenty of beers to keep your group entertained throughout the weekend!
Having worked with Croft Farm for many years we are excited to combine a host of activities and events all at one amazing venue for your group to enjoy. It also gives the players something to celebrate at the end of a largely disrupted season! If the activities are not something you’d be interested in, we are offering the option of swapping the activity for 3 Free Pint tokens instead, which some of you may wish to do!
Located just outside Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, where rugby is very much part of the local tradition, Croft Farm’s unique onsite facilities include a log cabin clubhouse, a rugby training area, a water sports centre offering brilliant activities such as raft building and katakanuing which together with evening entertainment there will be plenty to keep the group entertained throughout the weekend.
In addition, you will have access to the onsite Rugby “Meadow” throughout your stay, meaning your group can train and play rugby onsite. There is a bar in the clubhouse, and plenty of food available so your group won’t be going thirsty or hungry at any point!
Your Rugby Tour Itinerary
Friday 20th August 2021
You’ll travel to Croft Farm where upon arrival you will be met by the Burleigh Travel team who will help you check into your accommodation.
The rest of the day will be free where you may wish to make use of the onsite “rugby meadow” for a short training session or book a water activity prior to your first evening team meal and a few beers will be on the cards no doubt!
Saturday 21st August 2021 – “7’s on the Farm”
Here you will join local sides and other touring teams to take part in a fun and exciting festival on the farms very own “Rugby Meadow”, so no travelling required!
The festival will be played using the XRugby7 rules which is a fast paced and exciting version of the game. If you have a large squad of players you can of course enter more than 1 team.
Once the Rugby is complete your group will enjoy some time to relax before you enjoy an end of tour BBQ to celebrate your successful touring weekend, which will be followed by “Band in the Park”, a live music performance to finish the tour off in style.
We will also be joined by a few familiar faces, including local Gloucester Rugby players Jake Polledri and his brand-new cider company, along with Lewis Ludlow and his mobile Pizza company!
This is a great opportunity to socialize with some like-minded rugby people, whilst enjoying some fantastic food and drinks!
