Community rugby has been considerably impacted by the global pandemic we have been through. As a team contact sport rugby has been amongst the hardest hit of community activities with considerable losses of funding at all levels.
At Hampshire Rugby we have made and continue to make considerable progress in delivering age grade rugby across all our club competitions. However, we are looking to the local communities and businesses across Hampshire to continue to support youth rugby efforts.
We recognise that the past 18 months have not been easy for businesses either but hope that some will see the value in supporting us in our plans for the next two years to recover from the pandemic.
Our U15 and U16 club competitions are a key part of our community game, keeping over 1000 young players engaged in rugby through their teens into U18 / Colts rugby.
