As part of our ‘Project Compass’ initiative to give back to our local communities, on Friday 8th July we proudly donated a recycled unit to the Ladies team at Sedgley Tigers Rugby Club in Whitefield; just around the corner from our Bury Depot.
The unit will be a multi-purpose hub for the team, mainly used for both storage and changing facilities. Previously, the team used their own homes to store their kit, which could be a nightmare if one of the team couldn’t make training, and they had kit at their house. Having a dedicated, secure unit at the club to store equipment saves the team a lot of stress and gives them peace of mind.
The ladies team will be able to use the new unit as their own private changing room, which will be pitch-side, saving them time from having to go back and forth to the club. To maximise on space and the unit’s potential, the team plans to extend their hub’s use as a shelter and somewhere to grab a hot drink for spectators on those chilly winter days!
Lucy Hobson of the Ladies’ team commented:
“It will be our base, our home to be able to discuss the team, development and match day tactics somewhere warm and dry, which is a huge bonus. Most other clubs rely on changing rooms for this, but we felt it was important to be able to do this pitch side which will ensure the team doesn’t lose motivation on the wet walk from the clubhouse”
We are thrilled to have supported the ladies team with the donation of a recycled unit that they have truly made their own by maximising the space to cater to their needs as they grow as a team.
The ladies team are always looking to recruit new players of all ages and abilities, you’re never too old, too unfit, or too inexperienced to play rugby. The ladies team isn’t just a team it’s a family. And if you fancy being part of that inclusive family at Sedgley Tigers then they train Tuesday & Thursday night’s 7-8 pm.
