Saturday 16 July sees the efforts of several months of planning coming together at Medway Park, Gillingham, with a full afternoon of wheelchair rugby.
Kicking off at 13.00 with Essex SaS v Dartford Valley Vipers in a Wheelchair Rugby League game. Then at 13.45 the three way final of the Theobald Trophy, Spartans v Moles v Saints.
Our own Gravesend Dynamite then take on Essex SaS (wrl) before the spectators are entertained by Ian Riches "Let them entertain you".
After that short interlude, Dynamite are back on the pitch to play Dartford Valley Vipers. The combined Rock Choirs of Maidstone, Rochester and Gravesend, 100 strong, are put through their paces by Director of Music, Katie Hockley, as they sing some of the more popular songs.
17.15 brings the main event of the afternoon when international wheelchair 7s takes the lead when England play France in what is billed as Le Crunch.
Half-time break brings in Rebecca Keenan for a rendition of "World in Union", before the players come back for the concluding part of the game.
Remember entry is FREE and this is going to be a great day for GRFC wheelchair rugby.
