Gloucester Rugby Football Club players, called the “Cherries and Whites” won five times the England Cup and one time the European Challenge. It is two years since the mythical English club Gloucester came to Tignes to have a training course during summer. The players of the English team came in order to benefit from the perfect conditions to work their technique out and improve their endurance.
The players had a super-busy programme: training courses on the stadiums (open to everyone for free), weight sessions at Tignespace, swimming, rafting, ascent of the Grande-Motte glacier, etc. They even went bathing in Tignes’ lake for a recovery session! It is worth telling the generosity of the players that accept to have a friendly rugby training with the amateur rugby club of Tignes “Les 100 fous du score”. The proof that they can be top-level athletes & real superstars while being humble!
The physical preparator of the Club Paddy Anson talks about “ideal conditions” and the fact that his "players come back in very good shape”.
Dates: from the 30/07 till the 07/08/2013
