Acklam Rugby Club
After one of the hardest times in sport due to the effects of Covid rugby has still not managed to recover. Pre covid we had a senior player pool of over 100 players where we would put out three senior teams weekly. This season we have at times struggled to put out two teams. On one occasion we didn’t have enough players to put out a first team.
We are having a big recruitment drive this summer. This grant would allow us to put on events and buy much needed rugby equipment to attract new and returning players. The events we are planning aim to provide a fun and welcoming environment to help build a team / club ethos for not only seniors but incorporating the older age grade section players. Building the club spirit is fundamental in helping us recover from Covid.
