For a household that doesn't particularly support any football teams we seem to have spent an awfully large chunk of time watching the World Cup...I now feel fully qualified to say "football is boring!"
I am and always will be a rugby girl. Growing up in Cornwall rugby was supported and religiously followed. People still talk of the time Cornwall and it's Trelawney Army marched (or rode on the train) to Twickenham to win the County Cup. Living with a proud rugby living Welshman means that our children will be booked into a junior rugby session as soon as they can toddle about on wobbly legs!
All being well on the 12th July we will find ourselves heading to Wimbledon RFC to join in with the Legends Rugby festival in aid of The Tag Rugby Trust. There's going to be action both on and off the pitch for people of all ages.
Teams from lots of Premiership clubs such as Harlequins, London Welsh & Saracens will be competing in a tens tournament while children with have their own mini tag rugby to join in with and Dazzle & Fizz to entertain them all day long!
If watching giant men at the peak of their physical condition get sweaty isn't your thing (really?!!) there's plenty of entertainment arranged throughout the day. JellyHammer and Me and Mrs Brown will be given a concert of their brilliant covers during the evening music festival and DJ Marie Claire will be playing in the VIP tent. There will also be a headline act shortly announced - last year UB40 played into the evening.
Tickets are from £20 for adults and £10 for children aged 5-15. VIP tickets if you fancy rubbing shoulders with the Premiership players are priced at £40. There have been BOGOF flash sales, reducing the price of an adult ticket to £10, but I can't guarantee that this offer will be available when you purchase.
What I can guarantee is that readers of Time to be an Adult can claim a 10% discount on purchasing by quoting LR2014LONDON. Just visit http://www.legendsrugby.co.uk to buy.
