Ipswich RFC is the 4th oldest (open) rugby club in the world and we will celebrate our 150th anniversary in the 2020/2021 season. These milestones need to be marked in style and we intend to do so with a host of special activities and events. As we build up to the season we will keep members up to date with plans and to ask for help when needed (which is always!).
Amongst planned events are the following dates to note in your diary:
- 29-30 August 2020 - “#150Fest” – Kicking off the special season with a senior and youth rugby festival. Rugby, Music, Food, Drink, Camping, Fun & Games at a family-themed competitive rugby festival over the bank holiday weekend. Do not miss it, so book your holidays accordingly!
- 31 October 2020 – Celebratory Dinner. With players and dignitaries past and present.
- 12 June 2021 – End of season ball. See out the season in style with a marquee ball at the club.
- 13 June 2021 – Youth and Junior Awards Lunch and Party. All age groups come together to close the season, celebrate and receive awards from special guests.
There will be much more going on throughout the 2020/21 season. We intend to have special kit & merchandise, undertake and historical archive project and use the opportunity to engage widely with the local community. We will need lots of help from volunteers and lots of sponsors to help make the most of this special season.
If you are interested in helping please email [email protected] and/or come along to the next 150 committee meeting at the club on 1st July at 7.30pm.
