NEC Harlequins Community Development Officer Nick Hyde led a three day camp at Folkestone Rugby Club last week. The players were drawn from a number of clubs across Kent, including Dover, Bettshanger, Tonbridge Judds and Folkestone.<br /> <br />The players who took part covered many aspects of the game, including handling, decision making, contact skills, as well as playing conditioned games to aid understanding. The camp was a huge success and will hopefully kick start a relationship between Quins and the junior clubs in East Kent.<br /> <br />"There are many clubs in East Kent, and sometimes they are forgotten. Quins are very keen to support rugby initiatives in the area and continue to develop links with clubs in Kent as a whole," said Nick Hyde.<br /> <br />Folkestone will be representing NEC Harlequins in the Coaching Clinics before the London Double Header at Twickenham on 4th September 2004, when Quins will play London Irish along with Saracens against London Wasps in the opening round of Zurich Premiership.
Tickets for the London Double Header can be purchased by calling the Quins ticketline on 0871 871 8877 or download a booking form by clicking here.
