Following the success of this event from the last three years, we are really excited to announce the date of this year's tournament: June 5th! Over the past 4 years, over 1000 students have played for the George Palmer shield, raising over £4,000 for the Samaritans.
For those new to Grey this year, this is an afternoon event for the entire college - GIRLS AND BOYS. Don’t worry if you don’t play rugby, this is a TOUCH RUGBY tournament, played in a very light-hearted setting.

It is really exciting to continue to hold this celebratory day for George, whether you knew him personally or not. George loved sport, particularly rugby, but he was also incredibly fun and loved to have a laugh. This tournament has been the perfect way to remember his passion and enthusiasm as a whole college, and this year will be no different!
The details of the afternoon itself and how to submit teams will be announced very soon but for now, save the date and get excited!
