The ladies show a touch of class in the tournament

It might have been a bit too hot, but the action was still fast and furious on the pitch as Ross-on-Wye RFC hosted the Midlands Ladies Touch League South West regional tournament.

Umbrellas, gazebos and popsicles were definitely the order of the day as we left the field under a blazing sun on Sunday July 10.

Ivy Jensen was voted Ross Player of the Tournament after a very strong afternoon, in which the hosts played four games in a row and finished second in the five-team competition.

Bredon was the overall winner, followed by Ross, Ledbury, Pershore and Berry Hill.

A club spokesperson said: “Thank you to Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue, Ross-on-Wye who provided all first aid support to all five teams and spectators during the day.

“A total of £126 was raised for the charity over the afternoon.”

“Another thank you to Kairos Sports Photography who took some great photos that day which can be viewed on their Facebook page.

“Finally, a great tournament cannot happen without the support of volunteers, so thank you to everyone who helped with the planning and running of the day, it’s appreciated.”

The women’s touchdown team won’t be back in action until September at Ledbury, but training will continue through the summer.

All ladies aged 13 and over are welcome, regardless of fitness level and ability, with practice on Mondays at the Greytree grounds at 6.45pm.

The mixed touch is on Wednesday evenings, and over the summer there will be combined workouts.
