Steve Hanna, community rugby manager at Leicester Tigers, said: “Lichfield is always a popular date in the rugby camps calendar from both the players and coaches perspective, we always have a great turn out and the players enjoy visiting the camp to join in with the session and answer some questions.

“Lichfield are a great community club with a well-supported mini and juniors section who’ve partnered with us for a number of years now. The camp is also attended by players from a number of clubs in the Staffordshire area and even further afield.

“Former Leicester Tigers player and now head coach at Lichfield Dan Hemmingway heads up the camp again this year.

“The camps are all about having fun, getting outside and improving your game – perfect if you’re new to rugby or looking to take your game up a level.”

Suitable for all abilities, players who attend the camp will also receive a free match ticket to Tigers game during the 2019/20 season as well as a branded t-shirt, ball and membership to the Junior Tigers Club.

Players will also receive a hot lunch and refreshments.
