PLAY RUGBY THE NOTTINGHAM WAY

In the Community

Nottingham Rugby’s work within the community is integral to the club’s identity. Offering a range of activities from rugby camps to attendance at public events, the Green and Whites endeavour to get young people involved in the sport.

Our national award-winning Community Coaches are committed to delivering programmes of the highest quality that help grow rugby across the county.

Whether it’s part of the curriculum or an extracurricular activity, the club offers a broad range of bespoke packages to suit a variety of needs and abilities. The community department also delivers programmes with Bilborough College and Nottingham Trent University.

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.

Rugby Camps

Play rugby the Nottingham way. Our incredibly successful rugby camps are renowned across the county for their professional yet personable approach. Run by professional coaches and attended by NRFC players, the camps teach children from 5-11 the fundamentals of rugby in a warm and welcoming environment.

Held at Lady Bay and various clubs across Nottinghamshire, we have the capacity to bring the Green N White way to your local team.
