Allianz Insurance reveals the return of Inner Warrior rugby camps for women and girls 

Posted: 30 April 2021

 

Allianz Insurance is very happy to announce that after a delay due to the coronavirus, the Allianz Inner Warrior rugby programme for women and girls is returning in May.

Allianz Inner Warrior is a series of rugby fitness training camps that are run by clubs across the country, designed to introduce rugby to those who have never played before, and give them a chance to try a new sport.

Since its creation 3 years ago, over 20,000 women across the country have attended Inner Warrior camps, with many going on to join women’s touch and contact rugby teams. 

As well as being the title partner for the programme, Allianz can reveal that it is providing the member clubs with a digital activity in between the May and September camps.

The ‘Allianz Inner Warrior challenge’ is a digital fitness initiative which will allow those registered to log their daily activities and workouts, meet others who have signed up, and compete for the top of the leaderboard on the app. 

Simon McGinn, general manager for commercial and personal, Allianz UK said: 

“Allianz is proud to be the Official Insurance Partner of England Rugby, sponsor of the England teams and title sponsor of the top flight women’s domestic league. We’re excited to join in the effort to improve and nurture the women and girls’ game which is a strategic priority for the Rugby Football Union (RFU). 

“It is a great time for women’s rugby and grassroots clubs are key to making a difference. As more women and girls get involved, the sport will grow, bringing the joy of rugby to more people across the country.

“Allianz is eager to help the sport grow. We hope to see the popularity of all women’s sport continue to increase for years to come.”

Clare Cooper, England Rugby growth manager (women & girls) said: 

“We are thrilled to have Allianz alongside us as we continue to develop the Allianz Inner Warrior campaign. The Warrior camps have been a great success since they were introduced in 2017, and to have over 150 camps taking place across the country this May is very encouraging.

“This shows the determination of our clubs to come back stronger than ever, and I know they can’t wait to welcome their players back, and to introduce rugby to women and girls who will be turning up for the first time.

“We are hugely grateful to Allianz for their support, and excited about how our partnership can develop to encourage even more women and girls into rugby over the coming years.”
