Festival Leisure Park are now supporting Basildon Rugby Club’s under 7’s. The young rugby team received a £500 sponsorship from us, meaning a brand new kit and equipment to see them through the season.

Dave Hare from Basildon Rugby Club said ‘Basildon Rugby Club are delighted once again to receive the help of Festival Leisure Park in supporting tag rugby. We have worked together for six years now with a variety of projects, always with Tag rugby in mind. This time, we have spent the sponsorship of £500 on new shirts and equipment for players on our youngest sides, and also bought some new coaching manuals for use with our little ones’.

‘We’re thrilled to be sponsoring the young Basildon Rugby Club team this season.’ said Matthew Chambers, our centre manager. ‘At Festival Leisure Park, we pride ourselves on working with local community groups, supporting where we can. It’s fantastic to help the under 7’s team in playing a sport they can enjoy throughout the year.’

We have supported rugby across the county for many years, sponsoring the tag rugby program at Basildon Rugby Club for many years were senior school pupils are trained to visit local primary schools to teach junior school pupils how to play.
