Oundle Hosts National Rugby Fives Tournament

The Rugby Fives Association held its National U25s Championship over two days at the weekend. Oundle has hosted the national tournament for the past seven years.

Old Oundelians Jeremy Manger (L 2016) and George Marshall (Sc 2016) returned to Oundle from Cambridge and Durham to compete in a field of 20 players from universities across the country.

The tournament’s Singles title was won by Ed Kay who was defending three previous title wins. He then joined partner Matt Shaw to win their fourth Doubles title in as many years.

Opened in 2007, the Pickard courts were built to Rugby Fives Association specifications to provide the best environment for players and spectators, and named after Sir Michael Pickard, former Chairman of Governors.
