Pitch Up For Rugby COVID Protocols

Sunday September 13th

To all

During these difficult times, all sports clubs are required by the Government’s Health and Saftey Executive to provide a safe playing and spectating environment and keep records of who has attended an event. We must be able to demonstrate that we have taken measures to ensure that anyone entering the site does not show any symptoms of COVID 19 and know who to contact after each event for the purposes of TEST and TRACE.

The COVID pandemic protocols for Oxford Mini and Junior to Pitch Up For Rugby on Sunday September 13th are:
