Old Leamingtonians Women's RFC are going for a big sponsor drive this summer.
The aim is to get new sponsors interested in participating and investing in the club and hopefully enable a new generation of young women to play competitive rugby.
Sponsoring a rugby team does not have to cost a lot. Companies can choose to help financially or by donating products. At the moment for example, the women's team is in desperate need of new water bottles, a new medical bag, shorts, socks and kit bags.
Currently the team plays in the wMidlands 2 Division and after finishing 3rd in 2004 - 2005, the aim is to go for promotion and play in wMidlands 1 in 2006 - 2007. This expectation is based on great progress that has been made in the team since the start of the last season. A number of new, very talented, players have joined the club and almost all of the experienced women have stayed with the club.
Old Leamingtonians WRFC is an integral part of Old Leamingtonians RFC. The women's section is supported by the club and the women have full use of all club facilities.
Promoting the game of women's rugby and attracting new players costs money. Your sponsorship will enable us to improve our facilities and attract more players to the game through greater exposure.
The goals for 2005 - 2006 are:
- Promote women's rugby and Old Leamingtonians WRFC in particular by playing high quality rugby in a friendly atmosphere.
- Encourage more young women to take up rugby
- Make people aware that, although rugby is a physical sport, it is accessible to all and has no more risks involved than hockey or football and it is a great way to stay fit and healthy.
- Increase the visibility of the team through a number of fund raising events
- Push for promotion to Midlands 1 Division.
- Conduct all activities in a fashion to support and encourage sportsmanship and camaraderie through the game of rugby.
