Women’s rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in the country
Last year (2011/2012 season) was one of our most successful seasons, with an increase in the number of our members, which was a triumph for the club. We avoided relegation in a very challenging league, and reached the semi-finals of the BUCS National Cup, exceeding everyone's expectations. And winning our Varsity match for a third year in a row!
Unfortunately, there are difficult times ahead. The start of next season will see the loss of over half of our members, as many of our team were in their final year last year. Whilst it's great that they have graduated, it means that we have lost a huge chunk of our team, so we need all the help that we can get to recruit as many new members as possible.
We need to be self-financing, and with buses to matches costing anywhere up to £360 per match, that is not always easy.
We have huge potential, but won't make it through the season without sufficient funds. We want to be able to finish the season in a better position, and to reach the final of the BUCS National Cup, and we want to win!
So Why Should You Sponsor Us?
Rugby helps to cultivate will-power, determination, physical fitness, teamwork and an overriding commitment to delivering the required result.
Rugby helps to improve transferable skills that can be used in both study and in the work place.
You will be supporting the development of Women's Rugby, as many of our members have never played rugby.
Being part of the University of the West of England, you will have access to over 35,000 staff and students, where you can gain publicity in Campus and around the Bristol area.
To help us, and be part of, UWE Women's Rugby having the best season they have ever had!
