A new set of Warrior Camps will take place in rugby clubs across the country this May following the successful launch of the RFU’s ‘Meet Your Inner Warrior’ campaign in January.
Aimed at encouraging more women and girls to take up contact rugby, it attracted 1,500 participants to try contact rugby through attending 100 Warrior Camps.

The camps teach participant’s key introductory skills and drills for rugby, with help on hand every step of the way. All people need to take part are a pair of trainers and their usual workout gear.
“It was encouraging to see the number of attendees to our January Warrior Camps, many of which had never even picked up a rugby ball before but who now play regularly at their local rugby club,” said Pete Taylor, RFU Women’s Rugby Development Officer.
“Through the success of the January Warrior Camps we’ve seen a phenomenal interest in the May sessions, with a lot of females, new and returning, keen to get involved.”
Inner Warrior ambassador Chloe Madeley said “I took part in my first game of rugby in January, participating in a Warrior Camp at Rushden and Higham, and absolutely loved it.”
“The atmosphere and camaraderie among the girls at the club was infectious and I’m looking forward to getting involved in the next set of camps in a couple of weeks’ time. I’d urge anyone who’s looking to get fit, make friends and have fun, to give it a try!”
