Welcome to the Nottingham Community Rugby
The pages in this section will give you an insight into the
range of programmes currently offered through the Community
The Nottingham Community Rugby team
drives a host of projects and aims to deliver an array of projects
and courses to support the growth of local rugby. We aim to deliver
high quality programmes in the Nottingham Rugby "catchment area"
which have proved to be a highly effective way of delivering
educational and health messages to young people. The
community department also takes its teachings to several colleges,
independent schools and universities in the East Midlands and is
involved with several community health initiatives.
The team focuses on developing
effective partnerships within the community, forging links with
local authorities, schools, sports clubs, local businesses,
charities and other like minded organisations that in turn help to
fund our work.
Nottingham Community Rugby is plugged into its local player base
at a variety of levels, ranging from grass roots, five year-old
ruggers, to semi-professional outfits in the East Midland's
What makes the Nottingham Community Department special is that
we have regular access and visits from Green and White senior
players throughout the year. Back rower Rupert Cooper is one player
who has committed to the programme.
The small but hard working department also relies on the efforts
of Sam Bignall and Josh Salathiel. Both completed their
apprenticeships at Central College while also furthering their
coaching credentials through the RFU's Level 2 coaching programme.
Robert Pierce is also working as a part-time community coach.
