The University Rugby Day is back with an action-packed day on the 13th of April 2022 at Sixways Stadium in Worcester.
Hosted by the RFU, the Students’ RFU and partner BUCS, the Day is an annual event dedicated to workshops, networking and presentations by guest speakers at the pinnacle of their industry to help attendees gain new skills and ideas in the continued effort to drive the game forward.
After a long hiatus due to the pandemic, this year’s University Rugby Day will be a special one: we will be celebrating all that is great about university rugby and exploring how we can make rugby the most inclusive and welcoming sport it can be in your institutions and clubs. There will be time to network, a rugby marketplace and the opportunity to learn from each other.
Commenting on the return of the event, Katy Storie, BUCS SAG Chair, Director of Sport at Newcastle University, and former England Player said: “Following the challenging past two years it is fantastic to be able to invite the student Rugby community to be back together again. Students are clearly showing a demand in wanting to return the sport with women’s rugby showing a record number of teams entering BUCS competition. I hope that the rugby forum will give us an opportunity to share good practice and showcase some of the inspirational work that students and institutions alike have delivered to bring us to this point of return. See you in April!”
The keynote speaker has been confirmed as Tom Ilube CBE, RFU Chair. Tom is delighted to be addressing the university sector and happy to take questions from the floor.
The event is open to all member institutions for up to five staff and students (please reserve your spot at the link below.)
The University Rugby Forum will be hosted at 12 noon starting with lunch until 16.30 when attendees will be invited to stay for the BUCS Championship Finals as our guests in the Stadium.
Deadline to register is by 5th April, the schedule and joining instructions will be shared by the 8th April.
