England Rugby has launched the next wave of its ‘Inner Warrior’ campaign, which has launched with a ‘New Year, New You’ theme.
The 2018 Warrior Camps will run for two weeks in January with 185 rugby taster sessions taking place at clubs across the country.
The 2018 campaign is encouraging women to kick start their fitness routine for the new year and challenge themselves to take up a new sport.
England Rugby is launching the next wave of its Inner Warrior campaign in January 2018.
According to England Rugby, the first year gave a huge boost to grassroots women’s rugby participation and since launching in January 2016, over 10,500 women attended Inner Warrior camps nationwide throughout the year, far exceeding the RFU’s initial target of 8,000. Of those women, 3,500 had never picked up a rugby ball before.
The influx of new participants into the women’s game has also led to the creation of 41 new female contact rugby club teams this season.
