The Challenge

The last months have been challenging for us all. And no part of our community has been left untouched.

Communities have pulled together, supported those who have needed help and protected those who are most vulnerable. 

At the heart of every community are its sports clubs. Sport brings people together, helps with physical and mental well-being and even in these unprecedented times gives people a feeling of normality.

Thanet Wanderers are the only rugby club in Thanet, running 3 Senior sides on a Saturday and has over 300 mini and junior members participating on a Sunday. As such the club sits at the very heart of our community. 

The aims of The Return to Rugby Fund

The aim of our Return to Rugby Fund is to make sure that Thanet Wanderers can continue to deliver community-based rugby to all who want to participate. 

Its first priority is to support those families who have been badly affected economically due to the pandemic by helping with membership and other playing costs so that no one is excluded from taking part, no matter their circumstances.

Secondly, to make sure the facilities we offer are up to scratch. Our flood lights on the 2nd team pitch need upgrading and the kit shed needs refurbishment to become the Mini and Juniors Centre.

And lastly, our Return to Rugby Fund will help support the RFU acclaimed Schools and Community programme making sure that those children returning to school in September are given proper PE time. 

In its second season, the programme has provided over 175 hours of curriculum rugby coaching to an average of 25 local pupils each session, provided over 26 after school clubs to an average of 16 local pupils, hosted over 15 inter-school games and hosted 3 age group rugby festivals. All of this at the same time as introducing rugby to these schools that have not previously played the game. This has all been set up and run within the last 24 months and has received community awards from the RFU.
