Players to visit St. Werburghs on Friday

Bristol Rugby’s first team squad will head to the Bristol Climbing Centre on Friday, as part of the Club’s ongoing pre-season preparations.

Having previously completed sessions at Portishead Lido, the players and coaching staff are set to visit the centre, based in St. Werburghs.

Built in the fifteenth century, the Bristol Climbing Centre is one of the most comprehensive indoor climbing facilities in the country, boasting twelve metre high climbing walls, pillars, fins, overhangs and arches.

“Wall climbing is one of the best all-over exercises you can do,” said Head of Fitness Lee Douglas. “It has a number of benefits, physically and mentally.

“Climbing requires a great deal of concentration, increases flexibility and is a superb strength builder. We’re confident that the players will find the sessions beneficial, and we thank Bristol Climbing Centre for kindly hosting us.”
