Bournville RUGBY

Bournville Rugby Community Department has been active since February 2019 and provides school coaching delivery as well as community projects for local priority groups.

Bournville Rugby Community has been successful in driving a range of projects with schools, funders and partners for the benefit of the club.

The Community Department has worked with the West Midlands Police, Sport Birmingham, Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby, 12 partner schools and also the Mini & Junior section to add value and opportunities within the local area.

Head of Community, Steve Johns, has set up Wheelchair Rugby provision as well as Walking Rugby for the over 50s through funded initiatives. 

A main strength of the department to date has been the ability to raise funds for specific projects through bids – these benefit our local community and club members.

This engagement has been a factor in helping to bring positive publicity and secondary footfall to the club through community events and activities.
