More than 50 Christ Church Rugby Club Members, joined by the Senior Censor Dirk and the Development Office, gathered for a gala drinks and dinner (by way of a warm up at The Bear). 

This is the inaugural event of a broader programme to celebrate and support both rugby and sport at Christ Church. Members assembled from seven countries (as far as LA and New Delhi) to remember their time at the House and the extraordinary achievement of three titles in half a decade. 

Jasper Reid (1991) organised the event and is now leading a programme of engagement between current playing members of the Christ Church Rugby Club and old members. The intention is to form bonds, support the club and to celebrate sporting excellence. 

As part of this mission we would like all old rugby club members to contact Jasper (jasper.reid@immassociates.com) in order that a record of all living players and/or interested parties can be established. From here a programme of engagement and events can be initiated to build on the extraordinary success of the recent reunion.
