August 2020 should have been a momentous time for Thamesians rugby with a tour by the ladies to Zambia for an international sevens tournament.

This tour was much more than a typical ‘rugby jolly’ with planned outreach in the schools and hospitals, and also providing the ladies from the host club in Zambia and other African teams with a unique opportunity to play a team from outside of sub Saharan Africa.
Thamesians went through a tough selection process and were proud to be chosen to represent British ladies rugby.
The sponsors have left their funds in place in anticipation that once we all get beyond the worst impacts of Covid19 this tournament will go still ahead (hopefully next summer). When this happens it will be an even more special celebration given what everyone has been through
Our hosts In Mufulira have definitely not been wasting their time having invested in their tailor shop and purchased three more machines and an over locker as well as putting in an air conditioner for the players/seamstress. Maybe these will be some of the kits being worn and flags being waved when the tournament eventually takes place!
We’ll keep everyone updated as hopefully this story will have a very happy ending in 2021.
