Legend Rugby Holidays

(Will Greenwood)

 

Hello Maidenhead Juniors Massive!

You may (or may not) know that I'm involved in a business which puts on sports holidays in various lovely locations... Our 'home' has been at the fantastic Forte Village in Sardinia since we started and as great as it is, it's also a bit pricey.

So... we've decided to add a new location which ultimately delivers the same incredible coaching/family holiday experience but at a much more affordable cost.

We're doing a trial week in Easter (13th - 20th April) and going out to a select group with a special "introductory offer" to try and get some bums on seats.

This is why I'm coming to you...

 

Venue - Desert Springs Resort in Spain

Rugby Legend - my old England mucker Lewis Moody will be heading up the coaching.

 

Special prices below:

- 1 bed apartment inc. rugby coaching (2 people) = £650 (should be £1,650)

- 2 bed apartment inc. rugby coaching (up to 4 people) = £975 (should be £1,990)

Accommodation is self catered and you'll need to add flights (to Murcia or Almeria) and car hire on top, but if you need any help on this, Pete and the team at Legend are there to support

Get active at Maidenhead RFC

Try something new this year and get active at Maidenhead RFC!

We are running fitness sessions on a Wednesday evening down at the club and we would love to get more men/women and boys/girls to get involved! This is a great way for people of all ages (minimum age 14, no maximum age) to come and enjoy group fitness and our sessions are especially popular with families with quite a few groups of older children attending with their parents!

We offer 45 minutes of group fitness from 8-8.45pm then an optional 45 minutes after of non-contact social touch rugby (until 9.30pm), which is really easy to learn and fun for the whole family!

What's more, this is all absolutely FREE to Maidenhead RFC club members, as this is run by the club's touch rugby section: Mohawks! Cost is £5 per 90 minute session for non-members. So if you are thinking of taking up something new, want to get fit or just hang out with some new people then come and join us any Wed night (no need to pre-book). Moulded plastic boots are the advisable footwear to bring as metal studs are not permitted for touch.

If you have any questions, please contact

Dear Maidenhead Colts RFC Team,

I am writing to congratulate you all for winning the final match against Tynedale U-18's on Saturday 19 May and being titled Champions of England.

This is a marvellous achievement and certainly worth celebrating as I understand this is the first time the Maidenhead RFC has won this title. You all deserve a pat on the back and I am sure your friends and families are tremendously proud of you.

You have made Maidenhead RFC very proud and again, please accept my warmest congratulations.

The Rt Hon Theresa May MP for Maidenhead and Prime Minister
