Hungerford Rugby Club Juniors supports new players in ‘Play for All’ scheme

We pride ourselves on being an accessible, inclusive, welcoming club and it will come as no surprise to learn that we continue to have the cheapest subs in the area – £80 per player and £60 for siblings. We know that fees can be difficult to find for some families and as ever, we’re happy to assist those who might need help with subs. And one thing we guarantee is that every player will get time on the pitch during competitive games.

Our Juniors section has been running a ‘Play for All’ scheme for some years to help meet the needs of struggling families with rugby-loving youngsters.

“Our ‘Play for All’ scheme covers all kit and even, where needed, annual subs,” said Hungerford Juniors secretary Lou Evans. “These wonderful, generous donations mean that up to eight children can play rugby at no cost with Hungerford this season. Without this help, they wouldn’t be able to.”

We also run a boot swap with plenty of spare pairs available if your youngster’s feet have grown. All we ask is a £5 donation to club funds if you don’t have a pair to hand in.

If members introduce another player, they get a £10 gift voucher, so spread the word and bring your kids’ mates along for the most fun they can have with an odd-shaped ball.

Our commitment is that every player is made welcome, everyone has fun and there’s game time for all. In junior and mini rugby it doesn’t matter how big the squad is – everyone gets to play. That’s the philosophy of the Rugby Football Union (the sport’s governing body) and it’s one that Hungerford Rugby Club are at the forefront of embracing.
