Chloe Butler – Australian International rugby player has joined our team at SNAP.
Since 2003 the Six Nations Rugby Championship has been sponsored by RBS, but last year the bank announced it was not going to renew its £11million a year title deal.
What’s the problem?
SNAP are heavily involved in supporting the grassroots game and want to see rugby move forward!
Our primary focus is to create new revenue and sustainable management for grass roots clubs to thrive.
We have recently been involved with players such as Vicky Fleetwood (England International) and would like to create a legacy within grassroots clubs for girls and women to continue to play rugby at all levels.
As a lifetime member of Guildford RFC, the sustainability of grassroots sport has always been a major concern for me, witnessing first hand the financial pressures that come with running an amateur club.
In 2012 the Guildford RFC clubhouse redevelopment resulted in long term financial commitment by its members to service significant loans.
I was inspired to start SNAP.....
Following the recent 'Red Roses Initiative' and SNAP's investor Simon Pennock offering contracts to the England Women's rugby squad - Simon and SNAP CEO, Mark Covington, traveled to Belfast to support the Red Roses.
