ST EDWARD’S r h u b a r b

LADIES’ SPORT Rep: Grace Gilbert (née Robinson) (K, 2005-2010) What did you most enjoy during your time at Teddies? How much sport we got to play and how much free time we got to enjoy (if only one still got that much free time!) What do you do as the Rep for Ladies’ Sport? I organise any Ladies’ sports for the Martyrs, but predominantly hockey, because that’s where the previous demand has been (and also what historically we have focused on). What events do you get involved in? Generally, the Ladies always participate in the DC Sixes, a six-a-side tournament hosted and organised by Dean Close School in Cheltenham.

Kit is provided – it is women-specific (proving we aren’t forgotten about) and it is in the classic Rhubarb colours!
