Girls Pitch Up and Play - 7th December 2014
Grasshoppers and Wasps Ladies are part of the RFU's Women and Girls' Local Rugby Partnership, where clubs are encouraged to work together in the development of the game.

As part of the project, Grasshoppers will be hosting a Girls Pitch Up and Play day, where girls all over Middlesex can participate in training and small games. This is open to girls at U13, U15 and U18 age groups.

This will then be followed by a question and answer session with Claire Purdy and Marlie Packer, two of the Wasps Ladies who won the Women's Rugby World Cup in France in August of this year. This is a great opportunity for girls to meet some world cup winners and to be inspired.

Wasps Ladies will then play their Premiership League game against Aylesford Bulls at 2pm.

Schedule of the day:
10am  - 12 noon - U13, U15 and U18 Pitch Up and Play
12 noon - 12.30pm - Q&A with Wasps Ladies World Cup winners
12.30pm - 1.30pm - Lunch for the girls
2pm - Wasps Ladies v Aylesford Bulls

Leroy Arbouine, Head Coach of Grasshoppers Girls said: "Being part of the LRP has helped us forge stronger links with our neighbouring clubs and we are very excited to be hosting Wasps Ladies for their Premiership League game against Aylesford Bulls.  to have some of the world cup winners available to the girls will give them inspiration to continue with rugby and hopefully some of the girls today will one day play international rugby. The Pitch Up and Play days have been very successful and we are looking forward to a good session with the girls."
