Time for a TWRFC Womens Team!

 

TWRFC Ladies have 3 successful teams catering for Girls from 11-18 with County & Area awards to their name along with an U15 National Cup Semi-Final place last season and an unbeaten U18 Side well on their way to similar this year.

What we don’t have is a Womens Team, so we are running an INNER WARRIOR CAMP on Sunday 20th January 2019 at the club from 12:00pm-1:30pm.

Please Spread The Word and get as many Wives, Girlfriends, Mates, Mums, Aunts, Sisters & Cousins involved in the sport you love and lets make club history by giving rugby to everyone.

The session will be fun, active, outside and involve throwing a ball about, learning how to support & drive eachother forward and enjoy doing it!

We look forward to seeing you on the 20th
