Last Sunday 28 April, the Minis held their annual Minis’ Rugby Festival at Avery Hill Park.

Being towards the end of the season they were hoping for favourable weather but unfortunately, the weather gods had a different idea!  The rain was not going to stop the event from going ahead and they hosted 12 clubs from far and wideacross London and Kent, which consisted of 71 teams and nearly 4 hours of wonderful rugby!

For the first time this year the Blackheath Minis introduced the Tournify App to schedule the matches and provide clubs with all the information they needed for the day.

It was a fantastic event with local suppliers providing much needed hot coffees and food for the players and dedicated spectators.

We would like to say a huge thank you to the Under 10’s teamwho organised the event and spent many hours making sure it was a success. Thank you also to all the local companies who took out adverts in our festival programme (spare copies will be available at Well Hall and Hervey Road) and to Greenwich Council for the use of Avery Hill Park.

The monies raised will go towards their U11’s tour next year which they cannot wait for!
