CHE­SHAM RFC is fast be­com­ing an im­por­tant cen­tre in Bucks for girl’s rugby.

Fol­low­ing the World Cup vic­tory by the Eng­land ladies team, the RFU have launched a strat­egy to get 10,000 more fe­males play­ing rugby by 2017, when ladies rugby will be part of the Olympics.

As part of the pro­gram, Che­sham RFC has been iden­ti­fied as one of the cen­tres in Bucks for ex­pand­ing the girls’ game.

This is based on the suc­cess of the club’s se­nior ladies side and the ac­tive and grow­ing girls sec­tion.

As in­spi­ra­tion for the girls team, Che­sham’s head coaches are women’s World Cup win­ners Rocky Clark and Kat Mer­chant.

As part of the de­vel­op­ment plan, the club re­cently held a county de­vel­op­ment day for U15 and U18 girls, at­tended by 50 girls from across the county, with the aim of se­lect­ing play­ers who will rep­re­sent Bucks.

Any­one in­ter­ested in try­ing women’s or girl’s rugby should con­tact Kristin Bowman at kristin_ bowman@hot­mail.com or visit www.che­sham­rug­by­club.com.
