How can I get involved?
As a Player
Are you a rugby sevens player and would like to train and play for the Bamboos? The easiest way forward is to get in touch with us. As a heads-up, we train regularly at our training base at Hartpury College. Training time is usually Wednesday’s 6.30pm. However times may vary – so better check with us before coming down.
As a Coach
We offer different coaching opportunities across our areas. We coach in schools, clubs, camps and of course our development squad. If you are interested in getting involved in any of these areas please forward your CV to mail@7bamboosrugby.
Two particular reasons:
1) Be different - to our best knowledge no other rugby (or any sport) team is called after a grass (yes, bamboo is a grass not a plant). We thought that give us some sort of uniqueness, a principle that we try to encourage throughout all areas.
2) It suits our philosophy – 7 Bamboos Rugby is a fast growing and flexible project with a strong focus on development. Bamboos is similar, once the tiny seeds are planted, it grows heavily with extreme strong roots. The seeds turn into enormously useful tools. Whether you want to build a bamboos bicycle or need a bamboos scafolding, nothing is impossible.
What is the difference between 7 Bamboos Rugby and 7 Bamboos RFC?
7 Bamboos RFC is the first-ever rugby sevens club in Gloucestershire and the social arm of the limited company 7 Bamboos Rugby. 7 Bamboos RFC operates as a separate club and oversees any playing activities of the development squad. 7 Bamboos Rugby on the other hand covers the business areas of our school programme, events and merchandise.
Got a story for us?
Are you a journalist, looking for the next big story? Don’t look any further. We have a great story to share. Whether it is about sports or start-up’s we are happy to be featured on your platform. Loads of other media have distributed the Bamboos story, so don’t be shy and give us a call.
How to become a partner?
We have a range of incredible supportive and generous partners on board. Some of the biggest rugby brands and local businesses in Gloucestershire are already with us. So why not joining them and support the Bamboos in one of many diffentent ways. Find out more here or download our sponsorship proposal.
Why do you support WWF?
We also like to give. Therefore we decided to become a business partner for WWF. The reason is quite simple. We only have one earth and we need to be very careful in the way we treat our beautiful planet. WWF does a great job in protecting this planet, therefore our support.
