CCCU WOMEN’S RUGBY
Canterbury Christ Church University
Our club had been active since 1991 when our founding member Janet Kean set up the club with the support of the university's men's rugby team. In the prior four academic years, our rugby team has performed outstandingly well, and we have accomplished incredible milestones in Christ Church history. In the 2015/16 season, we remained undefeated throughout the entire year of the rugby season, winning our league and as a result, moving up into the league above. Consequently, our travel perimeter increased. Moving into this league was challenging. However, through hard work from all of our team, we managed to achieve a close second place in the 2016/17 season. The 2017/18 season saw us reach our peak achievements to date. We achieved a comfortable first place in our BUCS league (South eastern 1A) and reached the last play-off round for Premiership level university rugby. This made us a headline name across the whole of the south of the United Kingdom, we played teams as far away as Swansea University and gained numerous awards that we hold to this day. At the end of the 2018/2019 season we stayed in the 1A league. However, as every good university team, we are depended on the intake of players and suffer through the progression of our players. Although we are proud of our ex-teammates due to them proceeded to excel all expectations playing for international teams such as Wasps, we wish to carry on the legacy and the environment we have developed in which your company could support. CCCU is a very small university in comparison to most. This means that there is not the budget for our Student Union to spend copious amounts of money on our sport teams.

In addition, as a women’s rugby team, we often play to break the stereotype and stigma rugby has and we sadly encounter however, your sponsorship could help facilitate our journey of representing Women’s Rugby equally to Men’s.
