TWRFC Ladies section is starting the new decade with plans to expand their player base. The Ladies section already have successful and established U13, U15 & U18 squads and work closely with Sevenoaks RFC in encouraging girls into Rugby.
January will see the launch of a new U11s squad for girls aged 8-11 (school years 4-6) at the club with plans to initiate a Ladies senior squad later in the season.
“The Ladies section has had great success with our existing age groups with over sixty registered players – playing in Kent League and Cup competitions. We have girls playing for Kent at county level and players who have gone on to represent Harlequins, Cambridge in the Varsity game and England” said Simon Parsons, Director of Ladies Rugby. “As a club, we want to build on that success and introduce an U11’s squad so we can engage girls earlier in their rugby journey. We will also be introducing a Senior squad which will mean TWRFC can offer a full range of rugby and encourage more girls to get into the game and have a clear progression in rugby as part of the #thisgirlcan campaign.”
Tammy Samuel, Ladies U13 Head Coach and former England International added; “No experience is required. If you were inspired by the recent World Cup or just want to come and give rugby a go at a friendly club, come and join us – anyone is welcome. It’s all about having fun and experiencing the exciting sport of Rugby.”
Try out sessions for the new U11s squad will be held at TWRFC, St Marks Recreation Ground from 10am to 11:30am on Sunday 12 and Sunday 26 January.
