Inner Warrior camps return to Durham County ahead of the Women’s Rugby World Cup

 

As we prepare for the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup to hit our screens, the RFU have launched another round of Inner Warrior Campaigns.

England travel to Ireland to defend their World Cup title in just 13 days against teams such as Italy, Spain, the USA and more.

The latest Inner Warrior campaign took place in May across England as part of the initiative to get more Women and Girls playing rugby.

Throughout the last Inner Warrior camps, England Rugby reported that they exceeded targets with over 2500 Women and Girls taking part across 150 camps and over 1000 new players attending.

As the next window of camps approaches, Friday August, 18 to Sunday September,3, clubs across Durham County and Area Six are preparing to welcome more females to rugby.

In Durham County, seven different clubs have signed up to run Inner Warrior camps including: Acklam Rugby Club, Darlington Rugby Club,Darlington Mowden Park, Houghton Rugby Club, Horden and Peterlee, Hartlepool Rovers Ladies and Ryton Rugby Club.

Across Area Six which includes: Durham, Northumberland, Yorkshire and Cumbria there will be 35 Inner Warrior camps taking place.
