Training start time is generally 10:30 am on Sunday mornings - unless we are playing an Away Game. Please see Fixtures List elsewhere on this web site for more information on Away Games.
New players always welcome to our capable and friendly squad - whether new to the game or experienced. We have a catchment area of 15-20 miles, with many players from the Wantage and surrounding areas.
Contact us or just drop by at a home training session on a Sunday to find out more and have a go -- see fixture list for dates when we're at home. Eligibility for the U6 and U7 section: From aged 5 to under-7 (at 31 August 2018, i.e. school years 1 and 2).
New players, contact U7 coaches, the Club or feel free to simply turn up at a training session:
NEW PLAYERS ALWAYS WELCOME AT GROVE RUGBY -- Go on: Give it a Try for 2018/19!
For youth teams, the 2018/19 season starts on Sunday 2nd September at 10.25am. New players are always welcome, and there is no rush to commit or pay anything. September (and training sessions, generally) are particularly good, because you can simply drop by the club at around 10.15am on a Sunday. This applies to Mini squads (U6-U12) all month and Juniors (U13-U17 boys and U13-U18 girls) most Sundays (check individual Junior team fixtures, in case playing an away match in the second half of the month).
If you have questions or want more information, you can contact the coaches directly (go to the team pages on the website), or use the club's online contact form. The Club's three Senior squads are also always welcoming of new players -- of all ages and abilities. Grove is a very friendly and competitive community club, i.e. everything that is good about grassroots sport.
Some teams start pre-season fitness and skills training in July and August, so you might be able to start sooner!
