Your club’s facilities and the quality of the rugby experience will play a big part in attracting and retaining players, volunteers and supporters. Their expectations may be based on their use of modern health clubs and leisure settings and if the club environment disappoints, they won’t stay involved. It is important that the facilities your club provides meets the needs of your members and users irrespective if you run one team or 30 teams.
Good facilities show your club cares and once clubs have prioritised which projects meet the needs of their players and users they might not realise the funding avenues available to them. There are many funding agencies, both at a national and local level, which can help your club achieve its ambitions on the pitch and within the local community.
