    • Max on Tour: Postcard from Hollywood

      In the final week of my world tour, I'm finishing my travels with some glitz and glamour by taking to the bright lights of Hollywood!

      Discover more!

      Hollywood, which is in the Californian city of Los Angeles, has been at the heart of entertainment for over 100 hundred years, so I had little trouble finding fun things to do.

      Ever since my grandfather, Leo the Lion, was the mascot for the famous MGM studio, I’ve always wanted to come to Hollywood,” said Max. I visited the Hollywood Walk of Fame, watched some great bands perform at the original Hollywood Bowl and learnt lots about the grand history of this amazing place.

      Here are some of the interesting Hollywood facts I learnt:

      • The famous Hollywood sign (pictured) was first built in 1923. It originally read "HOLLYWOODLAND", which was the name of a new housing development in the hills above Chinatown, a district of Hollywood
      • Filmmakers chose to move to Hollywood in the early 1900s for two reasons: the good weather conditions and to escape the strict rules they had to work under in places such as New York
      • The most expensive Hollywood film ever made is 'Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End'. It cost $300 million to film and made nearly a billion dollars in profit

      I hope you all had a super summer holiday, said Max. I certainly did, but it’s now time to come back to the Rec for the new rugby season. I look forward to seeing you all there too next weekend for our first home match of the season!

    • Max On Tour: Postcard from South Africa

      I'm now on the fifth and penultimate week of my world tour, I've been on a safari in South Africa.

      Discover more!

      Having been settled in Bath for so long, I thought it was about time to revisit my roots. Not only did I enjoy catching up with my fellow lions, I also got to get up close to many other fantastic animals on my safari trips.

      Here are some of the things I learnt during my time on safari: 

      • Despite looking like dogs, hyenas are actually more closely related to cats. The most common of all large carnivores in Africa, hyenas hunt in a clan of up to 50 members and are led by a female 
      • Giraffes have blue tongues that are average around 20 inches long, which enable them to reach and taste the highest - and tastiest - leaves on trees 
      • Lions normally rest for about 20 hours a day. (Max, however, is more used to early starts due to his various Junior Membership Club duties) 
      • If you thought crocodiles looked like dinosaurs, that’s because they’ve been on earth for around 200 million years. Their jaws contain 24 teeth that are designed to grasp rather than chew – they swallow stones in order to grind food inside their stomachs
    • Max On Tour: Postcard from Sydney

      I'm having a great time here in Sydney, it's a fantastic city even if it is a little cooler at this time of year! Although I sadly had to miss the game against Scarlets at the Rec on Saturday, rest assured, I'll be back for the opening match against London Welsh on the 13th September!

      Discover more!

      Here are some of the facts I learnt from my time in Oz:

      • Australia’s low rainfall makes it the driest inhabited continent on Earth
      • Despite its usual lack of rain, the 2011 floods in the tropical Australian state of Queensland covered an area larger than France and Germany combined
      • Because of Australia’s unique ecosystem, it is home to many animal species' that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. These include the Kangaroo, Platypus and Koala Bear
      • The name ‘Australia’ comes from the Latin word ‘australis’, meaning southern.

Information for parents

Set your kids on the path to being legends in the making

The ultimate aim of the Junior Membership Club is to inspire more children to lead fitter, healthier and more active lifestyles. We have set up an initiative called the ‘Children’s Challenge’ which is a set of fitness games created by the players aimed at girls and boys aged up to 15 years.

  • Please be aware that should your child attend any Junior Membership Club events throughout the season, photographs may be taken and used in the future to publicise the Junior Membership Club. If you do not wish your child to be involved in any photographs please make a member of staff aware at the time.
  • Each member is issued with a membership card with unique club ID on. These cards do not count as valid match tickets and should not be used to gain entry to the Recreation Ground on a matchday.
