Inner Warrior camps to return to Durham County after huge success in May

Inner Warrior camps to return to Durham County after huge success in May

After a successful launch of the Inner Warrior campaign in May to attract more women to contact rugby, England Rugby are launching a second Inner Warrior camp in August.

Durham County saw a number of clubs hold Inner Warrior camps attracting women and girls to our rugby family.

In May, England rugby exceeded targets for their camps;

  • Over 2500 Women & Girls took part across approx. 150 camps
  • Over 1000 new players attended
  • See snapshot of some of the successes here – Inner Warrior Round Up May 2017

And so, to build on this we are now running another Inner Warrior Camp campaign from Friday Aug, 18 to Sunday September, 3 which will be during the Women’s Rugby World Cup so a great time to centre recruitment around!

What’s in it for your club?

Your Inner Warrior Camp will receive:

  • Support from local England Rugby staff in the build-up and during your event.
  • National promotion through England Rugby’s website including sign up options for new people.
  • Links to a national campaign across England Rugby channels and press that will be re-launched just ahead of all events.
  • Access to the England Rugby Brand Centre to design your club poster/flyer/social media banner and use the event guide with England Rugby imagery and phrases.
  • There will be opportunities in each area for certain events to be supported with further resources once the applications are in.

What do I have to do to register?

  • Simply click HERE to register your event. This will take less than 5mins if you know the date and time of your event
  • You MUST apply by Friday July, 14!    


What does the club do next?

  • Start planning how you are going to run and promote your Inner Warrior Camp, ensuring the whole club buys into this.  After all, this could result in more members!
  • Think of what will encourage local non-rugby women / girls to come down and have a go – not necessarily always rugby related!!
  • Once your event has been accepted as an Inner Warrior Event, get it on social media and ensure you share it regularly with as many local groups as possible


Durham County look forward to seeing lots of clubs registered and involved in the Inner Warrior camps to recruit more women and girls to our rugby family!
