The club has held an October Mini Rugby inter-club festival for many years but this was the biggest ever.

57 teams came to Crawley from almost every rugby club in Sussex, from as far afield as Hastings, Eastbourne, and Chichester and it seems that a great time was had by all, especially the 350 or so seven and eight-year-olds participating.
