Welcome to the Nottingham Community Rugby site.

The pages in this section will give you an insight into the range of programmes currently offered through the Community Department.


The Nottingham Community Rugby team drives a host of programmes and aims to deliver an array of projects and courses to support the growth of local rugby. We aim to deliver high quality programmes which have proved to be a highly effective way of expressing educational and health related messages to young people.  The community department also takes its teachings to several colleges, independent schools and universities in the East Midlands.

The team focuses on developing effective partnerships within the community, forging links with local authorities, schools, sports clubs, local businesses, charities and other like minded organisations that in turn help to fund our work.

Nottingham Community Rugby is plugged into its local player base at a variety of levels, ranging from grass roots, five year-old ruggers, to semi-professional outfits in the East Midland's region.

What makes the Nottingham Community Department unique is that we have regular appearances from Green and White senior players. Back rower Rupert Cooper is one player who has committed to the programme.

The small, but hard working, department also relies on the efforts of Sam Bignall and Josh Salathiel. Both completed their apprenticeships at Central College while also furthering their coaching credentials through the RFU's Level 2 coaching programme. Our Community Manager Robert Pearce, also a level 2 qualified coach, also coaches within the community.
