It was only 10 weeks ago since Kenilworth Rugby Club opened its doors to a new women’s team and the team have now got 30 players on its books. Training and participation numbers have been very impressive and the club has been greatly overwhelmed by the reception which the section has received in recent weeks.

Over the last few weeks, Community Rugby Coach Dave Lote has ran guest sessions with the ladies and he was in awe of what had been accomplished in a short space of time. Dave said ‘I can’t believe that it has only been a few weeks, but you have already created a strong team with lots of drive and enthusiasm; credit to the coach and all involved in making this happen’. Over the next few weeks, Head Coach Tim Burden will now focus on putting all that the squad have learned over the summer in preparation for the first game on September 27th  at home to Handsworth on Sunday 27th Sept @ 12.45. Skipper Sarah Munday seems very confident that the team are going into the first game in top form, ‘we are excited about the prospects of running out unto the pitch for the first time, the ladies are confident and ready for the challenges ahead and there is no doubt that we will come out on top’ Munday said.

Would you like to give it a go or do you know someone who would? Training takes place at Kenilworth RFC Training Grounds, The Cowpatch, Glasshouse Lane, CV8 2AL(next to the Kenilworth Wardens Cricket Club). Every Wednesday from 7pm. For further information, email
