The Bedford Blues Community Rugby Department is delighted to announce that their second rugby camp will be taking place in the October half term holiday and will also include a kicking master class from Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer.

The rugby camp is open to players of all ages and abilities with boys and girls being welcomed to the sessions which take place over three and a half days at Goldington Road – the home of Bedford Blues.

Youngsters will be able to train as professional rugby players while also being put through their paces with a variety of drills including core skills, evasion tactics and fun-packed games all under the close tutelage of experienced players and coaches.

An additional half-day session will also take place on Friday 28th October with former Wales international Mike Rayer, passing on his wealth of experience during a kicking masterclass that is open to all.

The rugby camp will take place between 9am and 3pm on Tuesday 25th, Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th October with the sessions costing £50 for all three days or you can attend a single day for £20. The kicking masterclass will take place on Friday 28th October between 10am and 2pm and will cost an additional £20.

Speaking about the session, Ben Gulliver, Head of Community Rugby, said: “Following the huge success of our first camp, I’m delighted that we are able to offer another fantastic rugby experience for youngsters in and around Bedford. It is also wonderful to be able to welcome Mike Rayer to the camp so that he can pass on some useful kicking tips to youngsters and give them an insight into Bedford Blues from a Director of Rugby point-of-view. I’m sure that this will be another fun-filled, action-packed experience for all who attend.”
