- NatWest RugbyForce 2017 launches
- Find out more about the programme and register here
NatWest RugbyForce has launched with the 2017 campaign marking the programme's fifth year.
NatWest RugbyForce, a partnership between England Rugby and NatWest, is designed by experts to offer grassroots clubs across the country a wealth of advice and support to ensure that they thrive as sustainable businesses.
The 2016 campaign was a huge success with over 600 clubs across England taking part in the NatWest RugbyForce DIY weekend.
It pays to sign up early for NatWest RugbyForce with 200 clubs that register before Sunday, 5 February receiving support packages of £500 as well as the opportunity to attend one of the NatWest RugbyForce workshops.
This year up to 70 clubs will also be invited to raise funds via a crowdfunding programme with NatWest RugbyForce contributing up to £750 as a booster towards the project and campaign.
There will also be 60 pitch maintenance packages including a visit from Twickenham's Head Groundsman Keith Kent, or one of his team of pitch advisors as well as a grant of £2,000.

Clubs that don’t register by the February deadline will still have access to a NatWest RugbyForce support toolkit and are encouraged to participate in the NatWest RugbyForce weekend.
