Impact of latest government guidance on rugby clubs

18 May 2020 08:59 | Devon RFU

Following this week’s publication of the new government guidelines on exercise, the RFU have developed some guidance on what this means for opening of playing fields and clubhouses on ruby club sites.

Rugby activity remains suspended. However, if clubs wish to open their facilities, players may now engage in restricted individual training. Click here to access the infographic we have produced that provides simple guidance regarding individuals training at rugby clubs.

Each club should make individual decisions about when their facilities are ready to open and can be operated safely. Until a club believes it is safe and responsible to reopen, it should remain closed. Facilities that are open must follow relevant government guidance - click here to access the guide on steps to take when reopening your club house, based on current government guidance.

We will continue to keep the rugby community updated on developments as and when we know more about the impact of the government’s decisions on the community rugby.
