The Big Day is Upon Us!!

By Facilities Manager

The Greene King IPA 7's Tournament 2019

Greene King IPA 7’s

The weekend has finally arrived!

A Big Thank You to all our Volunteers that have ‘put their hands up’ this year, without which, this event would not be possible.

We had a last minute surge of help this week that enabled the Club to fill all the necessary positions over the weekend and on the Big Day. The only outstanding requirement would be getting as many helpers as possible for the usual ‘Clear Up’ on the Monday morning, if you could spare the time.

Following the arrival of the disappointing ‘Cold Front’ last night (cancel the trip to the beach!), we expect to see the back of this on Sunday, with a fine, dry day with temperatures in the mid-teens.

Unlike previous events, we have invested in a much bigger Marquee this year, which is open to EVERYONE! This will become our new ‘Food Hall and Beer Tent’ all under one roof.
We will have the usual tasty Burgers and Hotdogs, but also Fish and Chips, Hog Roast and Nacho’s…..but don’t forget our Chocolate Brownie stall for those that like a bit of pudding!
We have put the ‘Festival of Greene King Beer’ in the Marquee as well this year, with all the usual Ales available, plus 15 Guest Ales on tap. We also have a ‘Gin and Fizz’ tent to provide even more options on the day.

This is our Club’s biggest Fund Raising Event of the year, so we would kindly ask that where possible every Club Member, their families and friends come down to the Club and supports, what will undoubtedly be, a great day of quality Rugby coupled with our usual high standard of catering and hospitality.

This year’s Rugby Union Special Guest: Tom Youngs - England/Leicester Tigers Hooker.
We look forward to welcoming you all on the Big Day!

Where next?

A Huge Thank You! On behalf of the club, we just wanted to say a massive thanks to everyone for making the Greene King IPA 7s another tremendous success.
The Greene King IPA 7's Tournament 2019 is nearly here. The new "open to all" Marquee houses the bar and food offerings and will create a great social hub and viewing area for Pitch 1. 10am - 19.00pm
