Mini rugby will bring a marathon-sized crowd to Oaklands

Chichester RFC host a West Sussex rugby festival for the mini and junior age groups – under-seven to under-12 – on Sunday, March 13.

Organisers expect more than 800 children and 1,000-plus adults to be at Oaklands for a full day’s action.

The festival is the highlight of the mini rugby calendar, providing a fun-filled day for children as well as a great opportunity to celebrate rugby at Chichester.

The event starts at 9.30am with the first games kicking off at 10am.

An awards ceremony for the winners, led by the Mayor of Chichester, is scheduled for 2.30pm.
