It may be lockdown out there, but we can still exercise… Care of the Marshalls the team has been busy, whilst staying socially distant. We’ve had 7k step challenge, a strava art competition, a sun rise and sunset edition, and now there is even a work out AMRAP ladder… Remember to stay active, but those socially distance rules! Stay safe.

Tier 5 – National Lock Down

Return to play stage 1… As you will have seen the UK has gone to a national lock down which means we cant play, and indeed, shouldn’t be mixing at this point. From a touch point of view, we return to Stage 1 of the return to play framework. We will of course keep you informed.

And we are closed… Tier 4

As you will have seen on the news, Tier 4 means that we can currently no longer play touch. As ever, as soon as this changes, we’ll reach out via socials, and email to let everyone know we are up and running again. The team at Blackadders touch wish you all the best for a happy, healthy 2021. Cheers
