Community Group delighted to be working with Esher Rugby

COMMUNITY Group is delighted to announce Esher Rugby as a new Community Partner Club.

The Surrey outfit join a host of Championship, National League 1, National League 2 and regional club sides in partnering with Community Group to form and operate their community department through coaching delivered by club community coaches.

Esher Rugby has a strong Minis and Juniors section of more than 400, with a First XV plying their trade in National League 2 South.

The community department will engage with the local schools in coaching all sports with a rugby focus while also supporting the community as a whole.

Community Group Chairman, Matt Price said: “We are delighted that Esher Rugby are the latest club to work with us on forming and operating their community department. I have often said that a community department for a sports club is a vital part of a club’s operational activity, providing engagement but also sustainable revenue into the club. At this time, that could not be any more appropriate.”

Matt added: “We are looking forward to engaging with schools and the Minis and Juniors, running holiday camps, writing bids for key projects and seeking sponsorship too. It’s going to be a busy, but exciting time!”

Esher Chairman of Rugby, Jeff Smith said: “In these challenging times it is important that we do not shrink our ambitions and improving our Community engagement and growing membership numbers across all sections of the Club has been a key focus for the General Committee. We have been incredibly impressed with Community Group’s people and their proven delivery for other rugby clubs. We look forward to working jointly with them to deliver a dynamic and thriving Community programme for Esher Rugby Club and the wider Elmbridge area.”
