Wimbledon RFC in the Community has been established to give greater focus to our Club’s social responsibilities.
Embracing the unique spirit of rugby and it’s core values, we believe that we can bring about positive change—helping children learn different skills, forge new friendships, increase their physical activity and ultimately, develop a lifelong love of sport.
Our programme is supported by SHiNE THROUGH, a not-for-profit enterprise that supports our work with local primary and secondary schools. Our long-term goal is to provide over 1,000 hours of free, high quality rugby, cricket and athletics coaching—alongside Curriculum based P.E. lessons—focusing on those schools that may struggle to consistently meet the Ofsted required hours of physical activity.
Working closely with school staff, we help them change the way their pupils’ think about exercise and healthy lifestyles as well as providing after-school clubs, sporting talks and club days throughout the school year.
