A popular rugby festival is calling for people to register to take part.

Diss Rugby Club's Pub 7's event is inviting pub teams, social groups and businesses in south Norfolk to submit their applications for the festival next month. The festival, on August 13, is a great opportunity for people to take part in a mixed ability rugby tournament, win prizes and enjoy the off-field refreshments.

In addition to the festival, a series of youth summer rugby camps will be taking part at the club.

The camps will be run by the club to introduce basic skills.

The Leicester Tigers will also be visiting during August to help youngsters develop core rugby skills.

The club's camp will take place on July 26 and 27 and August 30 and 31 and will be open to both boys and girls aged between seven and 12.

The Leicester Tigers coaches will be training players of all abilities from under 7s to under 14s from August 1 to 5.
