Grassroots rugby has contributed to the strong culture and record number of people playing rugby worldwide as the sport continues to grow and prosper across the globe.
Grassroots clubs are the lifeblood of rugby and a force for good in the local community, and for most, grassroots rugby is a core part of day-to-day life. From weekly training, to running out on a Saturday or coaching juniors on a Sunday, rugby is a huge part of many people’s lifestyle, as they invest more and more into the game.
During the recent England World Cup squad announcement, head coach, Eddie Jones talked about the importance of the community game and the role grassroots clubs and their volunteers play in the development of players at every level. Jones stated, “The base of our game has always been the grassroots clubs,” and how “your first coach and your first club is such an important experience for a rugby player - it dictates how you approach the game.”
For grassroots clubs to survive and thrive, it's not just one person who takes responsibility; it’s an entire club and community effort. This determination is where the true spirit of grassroots rugby is found. We are proud to support The Rugby Show, which has been specifically designed and created to support, engage and encourage grassroots rugby, and bring the whole rugby community together for a celebration of our sport.
