Project to increase rugby diversity

Figure image

Leicester Tigers are aiming to improve the diversity of women and girls playing rugby regularly as part of a ground-breaking Project Rugby programme, with investment from the Asian Sports Foundation and Sport England.

Project Rugby, run in partnership with Premiership Rugby is designed to increase participation in the game among traditionally under-represented groups including those with disabilities or from ethnically diverse or low socio-economic backgrounds.

With backing from Project Rugby and this new investment, Tigers will provide opportunities for women and girls from a range of ethnic backgrounds to trial and play the game through sessions held at local locations and with the aim of transitioning players into their local rugby clubs by the summer.

If you are interested in getting involved in rugby through this programme, contact Tigers’ women’s and girls’ rugby development officer Amanda Jones by emailing [email protected] or call 07706 355057.
