Royal Air Force Halton will host a Junior Rugby Festival on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd March 2013 to celebrate the centenary year of flying from the RAF Station.
Set in the heart of the Chilterns near Aylesbury (Buckinghamshire), RAF Halton is home to servicemen and women from the RAF, Army and Royal Navy together with a variety of contractor and civil service staff. Their main job is to train personnel to the highest standard so that they may contribute to the UK's Defence Strategy both at home and abroad.
The Junior Rugby Festival is open to teams from the Under 13s, 14s, 15s and 16s age-groups, with the games being played on Saturday and Sunday. As well as the rugby games, there will be opportunities to take part in military and RAF activities whilst at the Centenary Festival.
Attendance is anticipated to be high so initially clubs will be restricted to fielding one team per age group. Individual games will be played according to the RFU rules and regulations and all players must be either RFU registered or part of an ESRFU recognised school team. The event is self-financing and costs will be kept as low as possible. The entry fee is £35 and this covers administrative costs, medals for those taking part and the Cup, Shield and Bowl trophies for winning teams. Any profits remaining will be donated to charity.
