WARRINGTON Wolves Charitable Foundation pushes to make rugby more accessible to young people with the Rugby Pop Up Clubs Programme.
The foundation will start its programme on Monday, October 14 at 4pm in Westy Community Centre with sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at various locations across Warrington.
Young people are encouraged to come along and have a go in the fun and friendly sessions, plus there will be opportunities to take part in a finals day event which coincides with the World Cup finals at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.
Neil Kelly, foundation director for the Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation, said: “As England and Wales are hosting the Rugby League World Cup this is the perfect opportunity for young people to engage with this support and give it a go on their doorstep.
“Through the Rugby Pop-Up Clubs, we will teach youngsters that rugby is fun, easy to play with friends and exciting to watch.”
The programme has partnered with the RFL (Rugby Football League), the governing body of the sport providing well in excess of 160 hours of rugby played, 1,000 participants and 80 volunteers running the sessions.
