IMPORTANT NEWS ABOUT SPORT AT BURNAGE RFC DUE TO CORONA VIRUS
It has been announced today that almost all grassroots sports in the UK has been suspended until designated dates or indefinitely in some cases, due to the Corona (Covid 19) virus outbreak.
From a rugby perspective that includes all senior games, training and the same for our mini and junior sections until April 14th at the earliest. We are taking a watching brief on this as it may change but taking our lead from the RFU guidelines which can be found here.
Paramount to our committee is the safety and wellbeing of all our players, members, visitors and guests of all ages that come to Varley Park to take part in a multitude of sports.
We understand a similar suspension will be imposed on grassroots football which will affect the many youngsters who enjoy the facilities of the 3G pitch in the evenings and weekends. I would ask the principals and managers of any teams or clubs with contracts to use the pitches to contact us as soon as possible. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0161 432 2150. More information about the FA announcements can be found here.
We will do everything we can to keep this page updated as the situation develops and update links to external news sites when we can, but we encourage all sports and social organisations that use our facilities to take their lead from relevant sporting authorities and government guidelines.
At the time of writing the club house and bar facilities will remain open and families and businesses that have functions and celebrations planned with us in the coming weeks can assume for now that we can proceed as planned. Our facilities rarely cater for more than 120 people in a gathering so we remain below the current expected limitations of 500. But again this may change, so please contact us as soon as possible if you have any questions regarding a booked function.
We are a small community sports club and like many others like us, the financial impact of these changes will be felt for many months and possibly years to come, so we thank all of you for continued support at this time.
