Chance for didi rugby kids to accompany international stars in Legend’s Game

An amazing opportunity has arisen for any young didi rugby stars and their parents to enjoy a day to remember at RugbyFest 2018.

The event is being held at Newbold-On-Avon RFC in Rugby this Saturday.

The family day is based around rugby, entertainment and laughter, with the main event being the international legends game. Starting at 4pm, former internationals from all over the world will be going head to head in what promises to be a cracking contest.

And didi rugby stars have been invited to be mascots for the day and accompany the legends onto the pitch. Those children will also be part in a didi rugby demonstration from 2.30pm. Parents of didi children involved will get free entry to the event.

The mascot slots will be given on a first-come, first-served basis and anyone interested in their little one taking part should contact for more information.

didi rugby owner Vicky Macqueen said: “This promises to be an exciting day for all the family and it’s a great opportunity for some of our didi youngsters to show what we do, as well as accompany some famous names from the world of rugby onto the pitch for the main event.”

Other events on the day will see Newbold RFC take on Banbury RFC for the Fereday Cup, a guest team take on the England Deaf XV and the inaugural VetFest Cup will see our more senior players compete in a Sevens Festival.

There will be loads of games and things for children to take part in from bouncy castles to a funfair, hook a duck to space hopper racing.
