Active Champion - Hinckley Rugby Club

2020 has been one of the most turbulent years in the clubs history, with horrendous weather at the beginning of the year, making the playing conditions very challenging followed by a complete shutdown due to a global pandemic, some may of thought all was lost. This was not to be the case. A dedicated team of volunteers pulled together a series of events to keep their rugby family engaged in the club from a whole club cycling challenge to raise funds via Crowdfunding to carry out works around the club. To being able to open the doors at the beginning of the new season for the grassroots of the club to access their beloved rugby. The club initiated a house style competition from our Under 6's all the way through to our Walking Rugby Veterans working towards house points. Some competitive games (in the return to rugby format) were even managed just before we entered the 2nd Lockdown to get things off the ground. The competition has continued with some fitness challenges over a week seeing 436 individual pieces of activity logged from 5km walks to 50mile bike rides all in the name of house points. This would not have been possible without the dedication of the whole clubs team of volunteers from its committee members, to its team mangers, coaches, parents and of course the players of all ages. Continuing to support the Hornets!
