Royal London launch Women and Girls’ Rugby Award

Founding Partner of the Lions Women’s Team, Royal London, have created the Championing Women and Girls’ Rugby Award which celebrates outstanding initiatives by grassroots clubs to support women’s rugby in their local community.

Each year, one club from each Home Union will be rewarded with a special trophy, plus a £10,000 grant to further invest in their women and girls’ programmes.

The successful clubs will have demonstrated they’re committed to growing women’s participation and representation within all aspects of the club. This includes community outreach, access to playing, equality across the club, celebration of women’s success, progression of players and coaches and staff and leadership at all levels.


How to apply?

2024 applications are open from 18 June 2024 and you can apply by completing the form below.

The entries will be taken through a two-stage judging process with a panel consisting of Royal London, Lions, and independent representatives, plus former England international Shaunagh Brown. Successful clubs will be announced later in the summer.
