FIRST of all, a big thanks to the Director of Rugby and the top man at Cobras Rugby Club, San Fulgencio for allowing us to train at their home ground.
Last night, pre-season 2018-19, Monday 23rd July, Torrevieja Rugby Club had it’s first training session. The idea of the club is to amalgamate the clubs in the area to form one stronger side and to stop the problems of the past. This has all been initiated by the Spanish and Valencian Federation.
The first training session was held on a local ground, but unfortunately that was a one off, but we had a great turnout of players of different nationalities travelling all the way from Torrevieja to San Fulgencio.
The training session was a huge success with more numbers than expected so it shows that there is a big interest in rugby here and that players just want to play rugby for the sake of rugby. Now they have the opportunity to do this with top class professional coaching behind it. It’s a pity that one of the clubs in the area is not behind the federation’s initiative, but that is life.
Training sessions will now be on Tuesdays and Thursdays on Naufragos beach in Torrevieja at 20.00, so let’s hope to see even more people come down to practice this Thursday onwards.
Also we are organising a touch rugby session on Guardamar beach this Thursday at 20.00 by the first aid zone on the main beach parade.
Look forward to seeing you all there at our training sessions.
