Join the Cornish Pirates on Tresco!
Come and watch the Cornish Pirates on Tresco and train with the best in the West!
On the afternoon of 23rd July Tresco is getting set for an invasion of pirates...over forty Cornish Pirates to be more accurate, along with a handful of Exeter Chiefs too! The cream of Cornish rugby are coming to the islands as part of a pre-season build-up and we are delighted that they are spending their first afternoon on Tresco.
Around 4.00pm, they will be doing a full practice session, demonstrating their sporting prowess on Tresco's sports field by the Community Centre. All spectators are welcome and it promises to be an exhibition not to be missed. At around 5.00pm, following their workout, the Cornish Pirates will lead a training session for young school age islanders and visitors, from teenagers to younger would-be rugby players. No doubt there will be a bit of touch rugby and plenty of opportunities to hone rugby skills with the experts, from kicking to passing. A fantastic opportunity for young sports fans! There's also the chance of picking up a few Cornish Pirates goodies, such as shirts and even possibly a few tickets!
