Description

We are one of the oldest rugby clubs in the country and a proud member of our community.

Wimbledon RFC in the Community was established to give greater focus to the Club’s social responsibilities and have a positive impact on the lives of local children. We know just how important our role is in keeping people active, healthy and happy and we’re working to be able do more to benefit those around us, year on year.

We believe that through sport we can bring about positive change, helping children learn different skills, forge new friendships and increase their physical activity.

We embrace the unique spirit of rugby and it’s core values to provide enjoyable coach-led experiences that encourage healthy lifestyles, build self-confidence and develop a lifelong love of sport.

But our programme can deliver much more, where the wider benefits of physical activity can help lower risks of diabetes, heart disease and obesity; and great coaching can build pride, improve behaviour and increase attainment.

With your help, we will be able to provide thousands more hours of coach-led activities for all children in the community surrounding the club.
