A new RFU initiative has been launched that will see Seaford RFC host a series of activities to get girls aged 9-18 involved with the game over summer

The RFU’s Love Rugby campaign is designed to promote and support girls’ rugby. England Rugby wants girls to have the belief and confidence that rugby is for them, and the Love Rugby campaign is designed to help clubs show the passion, energy and fun that girls experience when playing rugby with their friends.

With England’s Red Roses currently positioned as the number one ranked side in the world, and with a home World Cup being hosted in this country next year, there is huge excitement and increased interest around women’s rugby union at present. Seaford RFC is capitalising on the momentum by running Love Rugby summer rugby sessions.

Seaford RFC will have four weekly summer rugby sessions on Sunday 23rd June, 30th June, 7th July and 14th July. Girls of all abilities are encouraged to attend, and gain from the benefits the sport brings to physical and mental health.

With World Rugby stating that the women’s game is the single biggest opportunity to grow the sport globally, the Love Rugby campaign was launched in 2023 to support more girls to play rugby than ever before.

The women’s game in England is already flourishing from the grassroots level through to the elite; the Red Roses are currently ranked the number one team in the world, while the participation number for women and girls have risen to over 40,000. With England hosting Rugby World Cup 2025, the aim is to reach 100k registered female players by 2027.
England’s most-capped player Sarah Hunter said, “There is a huge opportunity to engage and grow the girls’ game, especially as we lead up to hosting Rugby World Cup 2025. I love the Love Rugby campaign and am excited to see more girls giving rugby a go, whether that be at school, college or their local club.”
