England Rugby launches new Women and Girls action plan

England Rugby has launched the women and girls action plan for the next four years. The plan is part of the RFU’s overarching Strategic Plan and funding agreement with Sport England.

Running from 2017-2021, the action plan recognises the significant growth in the female game over the last four years and sets out a plan for the next four years to continue to grow the number of women and girls engaging in rugby.

The plan’s ambition is to get more women playing more often. It includes proposals to grow playing numbers, improve the opportunities to play, ensure that those with talent can progress, increase the numbers of females engaging in coaching, refereeing and volunteering and improve the female-friendliness of rugby facilities.

Underpinning all of this is a commitment to strengthening England Rugby’s commercial partnerships in this area and change perceptions of the game.
