Senior rugby side gear up for San Sebastian tour
October 16, 2019

Rydal Penrhos’ senior rugby side will head to the continent for another specially arranged tour over the half-term break.

The school’s first XI will visit the stunning area of San Sebastian in northern Spain, with the group set to depart on Thursday, October 17.

There will be a host of exciting elements to the tour, which will see the squad take on numerous sides from across the area within a competitive setting.

They will also participate in specialist training sessions on a consistent basis, in addition to taking in the sites and surroundings throughout one of the most picturesque sites anywhere in Spain.

This is the second time a team has visited the area recently, with Rydal Penrhos’ first XI hockey side also choosing San Sebastian as their base for a hugely successful winter training programme.

Head of Physical Education Nicky Head, said: “Our sports tours have proven to be a great way of boosting friendships, communication on the field and overall development of skill-sets in general.

“We are thrilled to be visiting San Sebastian yet again and each member of the squad is very much looking forward to the unforgettable experiences that lie ahead.

“Hopefully this will stand them in good stead for the remainder of both the 15 season and the upcoming 7s campaign in the New Year.”
