Wansbroughs sponsors Chippenham RFC Ladies

Wansbroughs sponsors Chippenham RFC Ladies

Wansbroughs is delighted to announce its sponsorship of the Chippenham Ladies’ Rugby team.

Chippenham RFC is one of over 1800 clubs and two million players of all ages who play Rugby Union in England. It is recognised as a team sport for both sexes with a core ethos of teamwork, respect, enjoyment and sportsmanship.

2022 has been a massive year for women’s rugby, both internationally and at a grassroots level.  Women’s rugby is played by approximately 2.7 million worldwide and is now the fastest-growing sport, with women now representing a quarter of all individuals playing the game.

Chippenham’s women’s team started in September 2021 and has quickly grown to include a full team of players, including two full front rows and a full subs bench.

The sponsorship from Wansbroughs will enable the team to purchase their first-ever kit and represent the town and county in a unified way. The support from Wansbroughs will also help the club continue in its efforts to expand, and reach out to all generations across the local community.

Oliver Price, Managing Partner at Wansbroughs comments:

“Wansbroughs has close ties to Chippenham and with some of our staff actively involved in the Chippenham RFC Ladies’ team, it seemed like a great opportunity to show support for our employees and to champion women’s sport in Wiltshire.  We look forward to attending a match and to cheering on the team.”

Robbie Spiers, Head of Sponsorship at Chippenham RFC comments:

“Chippenham RFC are thrilled to welcome Wansbroughs to our family of sponsors in general, and to the select group in their support of this year’s ladies’ team. Sponsorship is vital for the running of Chippenham RFC, so this new sponsorship from Wansbroughs is very welcome indeed. The captain, Kelly Tombs, has worked tirelessly to get the new section off the ground, both on the pitch and in the background, raising sponsorship for the running of the team, so we at the club thank all those involved for their support. Many thanks, and we look forward to a long-lasting relationship with all at Wansbroughs.”
