Yesterday, we brought together over 200 pupils and staff from our Schools Partnership
programme at The Rec to celebrate our growing connection with local schools. 


What was on offer?

Space Hoppers

Ran by Bath Rugby and RUH volunteers, the pupils were set into teams to race one another.

Bouncy Castles

Ran by Frome College & Bath Rugby volunteers, all five bouncy castles spread joy.

Mixed Ability Rugby

Ran by our new Casual Coach, Huw Solly, this was an inclusive rugby game for all.

Football

BRF Coaches and work experience students taught pupils how to kick and play. 

Tug of War

A bit of friendly rivalry was in play as schools took on one another at Tug of War. 

Tennis

Pupils were taught tennis skills by our BRF Coaches and work experience pupils.

Our Summer Scrum event is a celebration of the work we do in schools throughout the year. Each school affiliated in our Schools Partnership model is invited to attend the mass event, hosted annually. This year, we worked with Bath Rugby to host the event at The Rec and will look to continue and grow this partnership for future Summer Scrum events. 

Our Communications Manager, Lucy Slade, said: "Our annual Summer Scrum event, particularly this year, is a display of the hard work our delivery team have done over the past year; visiting and delivering multi-sports and skills sessions in schools.

"Having only started with the Foundation three months ago, I feel genuinely proud to be involved in such a fully-inclusive and welcoming event. The feedback we received following the Summer Scrum from not only schools, but volunteers too, shows just how much of an impact the Foundation is making on changing young lives.

"We are now looking to grow this event and make it bigger and better than ever, welcoming even more schools next year."


Volunteers and staff at our annual Summer Scrum

Thanks to the dedication, commitment and support of over thirty volunteers from Nine Feet Tall, Frome College, Bath Rugby and Bath Rugby Foundation, our Schools Partnership pupils left with a lasting impact. 

This is why we do what we do—to positively influence young people’s lives.
