The Tigeresses now have 6 regular players and are improving all the time. We are currently looking at the possibility of running a second boys team in another league so if anyone (male or female) would like to join the Tigers / Tigeresses then they would be more than welcome. If you would like to join the teams or know someone who would please see Paul or turn up for training Saturdays 9.30 – 10.30 at Exmouth Rugby Club.

So please book the date in your diaries.

Summer Holiday June 2019 – Attached to this newsletter is a separate letter regarding the summer holiday next June. For a variety of reasons including being able to keep the cost affordable we are returning to Majorca to see the many friends we have made to help us celebrate our 30th birthday as they did our 25th.

30th Birthday – April 2019 – Please let us have your ideas for ways we can celebrate this event, so far we have the grand prize draw and are looking for additional prizes, a party and a charity ball. Am sure you can all come up with many more than that so please let us know.
