Yorkshire RFU bring women's rugby tournament to Pocklington School

Pocklington School hosted a day of rugby for over 90 under 18 players recently, organised by the Yorkshire Rugby Football Union, when the original venue for the day had to be changed due to flooding.


The school sports facilites were used for the tournament free of charge.  A small charge was made for one member of school staff to facilitate the use of facilities.


Sylvia King, Chair of U18 Yorkshire Girls said: “A huge thank you to the team at Pocklington School for stepping in to help us out at extremely short notice for what turned out to be a fantastic day of girls rugby. The players, coaches and spectators all agreed that the facilities were excellent and the help the staff gave us to set everything up in time for the event was tremendous.”

Pupil Involvement

The school hosted over 90 under 18 female rugby players.
