A surge of interest is sweeping through women's and girls rugby.
Women's rugby has been played in Wales since the 1970's and is now one of the fastest growing sports in the country. The WRU is responsible for encouraging more women and girls to play both at club and representative level, with those aspiring players having the opportunity to trial for Wales Under 20s and Seniors.
Women's and Girls' rugby is currently played in three age groups, Under 15s, Under 18s and Seniors. Girls and boys play mixed rugby up to and including under 12s.
Clubs should be aware of the enormous benefits a women's section can bring including extra members, extra income, more volunteers, increased publicity, enhanced links with schools and increased opportunities for sponsorship and funding.
To ensure new women's and girls' teams have the greatest chance of sustained success the WRU now require Clubs to follow a step by step "Women and Girls Team Affiliation Process" which is available to by clicking here or by DOWNLOADING.
Once teams have worked through the process the WRU will determine whether the new section is viable and give their approval for the creation of the section.
All enquires should be directed to Nicola Smith, WRU Women's Community Rugby Manager, email@example.com 07725 828697
