Coventrians RFC was founded in 1921, over those years we have faced many challenges as a club and as a family in and out of rugby. The club has lost valued friends too soon and overcome times of hardship.
As we approach our 100 years anniversary we are proud to have a great structure to build upon. The team put in some really solid performances last season and were disappointed not to play it out - we have had some new blood and lost some players due to long term injuries. We continue to have a growing Mini & Junior section, Touch Rugby Club and we welcomed Coventry's first Inclusive LGBTQ+ in Coventry Corsairs - who are also operating a Ladies team. We continue to home the bowls and of course the football teams.
As you can imagine this puts pressure on our facilities - which is something we plan for each year so we can make it work. Unfortunately this year we have lost out on a big percentage of out income and as such we would ask out members and the wider community to help us continue to keep the high standards we have reached but also to help cover further outgoings.
The club is focusing on improving the changing facilities, the outdoor area, improving the offering for our supporters but also allowing improved social distancing over the coming months.
We understand that many will face similar uncertainty so genuinely appreciate your support a this time, we have the opportunity to have up to £1000 matched by the Coventry Council if we reach our target and again we are thankful for their support in this.
