We are currently at Stage D of the RFU's Return to Community Rugby Roadmap. Taking this into account – alongside Sport England and Government guidance – a COVID19 Working Group (all volunteers) has been beavering away to ensure the start of our season at BRUFC is COVID19 compliant and as safe and welcoming as possible.

We have:
We appreciate there’s a level of frustration that comes from the situation we are in, however, we have a real opportunity now to engage with the RFU’s new Ready4Rugby initiative and get players – young, old, and older – back having fun. We urge all members to comply with the guidance and procedures we have had to put in place. The last thing we want is to be instructed to close down rugby at Bicester due to non-compliance with RFU and government guidance.

All members should read the COVID19 Return to Rugby plan and ensure that you complete the COVID19 Symptom Checker + Track & Trace form in advance of every session with the details of everyone in your household/family attending (even if just as a spectator).

Additional Stage D resources are available in the Documents and Guidance section of this website.

MEMBERSHIPS

With the start of a new season, this would usually mean a rise in membership fees, due the continuous increase in the running costs of the club. 2020 has been an unusual year with COVID19 cutting our 2019/20 season short and sending the world into a spiral of uncertainty. The club is incurring significant additional costs in order to stay COVID19 compliant (with the necessary cleaning equipment, sanitiser, PPE, increase in pitch use due to social distancing requirements etc.). 

Membership fees have however remained frozen for the 2020/21 season. This makes it all the more important for you to pay your membership fees as soon as possible.

The Registration and Membership section on the club website gives you a breakdown of each of the different membership options, together with a list of benefits you receive as part of this membership. Now, more than ever, we need you to pay promptly.
