There are places available at the pre-match lunch before the game but I do need to know by return if you wish to book in. As advised earlier this week due to popular demand we are reverting to a 3 course lunch before all our home games this season. The cost remains at £30/head for season ticket holders (to include a match programme) and £40/head for others to include a match ticket in addition to the programme.
We would like to thank Gallagher for once again being our Main Sponsor this season, their 6th successive season in this position. The Club would not survive without the financial support of our commercial partners, so in order to maintain their commitment and attract new partners in the future, we need our members and supporters to utilise their services wherever and whenever possible, so please help if you can.

Half Term Kids Camp Tuesday 29th – Thursday 31st October
With half term upon us please note that we are holding a three day Half Term Holiday camp on Tuesday 29th/Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st October for the mini and youth age groups (Under 5s – Under 15s).
The camp will be run by our Head of Community, Dom Palacio, and his team of enthusiastic coaches and each day will be full of fun packed activities aimed to improve core skills and team work.
All coaches have a wealth of both playing and coaching experience and are all RFU Level 2 qualified. They all hold current advanced DBS clearance and there will be a dedicated first aid trained coach in attendance at all times.
The cost is £90 for three days, £65 for the two days or £35 for one day, and timings are 9am to 3pm. A packed lunch and drinks are required as well as a gum shield if appropriate for your child’s age group, plus suitable clothing if it is wet and cold.
The camp is open to all boys and girls, not just Richmond members and for more information and to book a place please CLICK HERE

National Rugby Survey – Your Views Matter
The RFU are encouraging clubs to ask their members and players to complete the National Rugby Survey so that England Rugby can best meet the needs of the entire game and at the same time grab the chance to win either one of five £100 England Rugby Store vouchers, or one of five pairs of tickets to an England Men’s game at Twickenham in 2020.
The views of everyone in rugby: rugby fans, age grade and adult players, match officials, club and CB officials matter and your experience of the game will be invaluable in the biggest community rugby survey of its kind. Click here to take part
