The Close turf paperweight
Limited edition, genuine turf glass paperweight from the birthplace of the game.
In preparation for the bicentenary celebrations in 2023, our historical rugby pitch was re – laid as a sand-based pitch. This gives the unique opportunity for rugby fans worldwide to own a piece of hallowed turf from the pitch where the game began in 1823.
Immortalise this piece of history forever in a glass paperweight made by Hafod Grange, who was awarded the Prince of Wales Shield in 1975.
Each paperweight is engraved with “The birthplace of the game, The Close, Rugby School” and delivered in a presentation box. A great gift and keep-sake for all rugby fans!
