THE Windsor Damsels are hosting a 'Warrior Camp' for any girls under the age of 18 and interested in trying the sport this Wednesday.

The Damsels, who are closely linked with the Windsor Dames, want to empower girls to find, connect with and free their inner warrior spirit by giving rugby a try and experiencing the dynamic, exhilarating sport for the first time within a fun-packed, commitment-free environment.

The Warrior Camps aim to encourage more girls to play rugby, teaching them key introductory skills and drills within a non-committal, social and fun environment.

Participants will be introduced to the basics of rugby including passing, kicking and tackling, along with enjoyable fitness routines.

It has also been confirmed that World Cup winning England rugby player Danielle Waterman will be attending the camp in Windsor to help coach the girls.

The camp will take place at Home Park (Datchet Road, Windsor, SL4 6HX) this Wednesday between 6.7.30pm.

England Rugby is launching the next wave of its Inner Warrior campaign in January 2018 after a successful first year gave a huge boost to grassroots girls and women's rugby participants.

Since England Rugby launched its Inner Warrior campaign in January 2016, over 10,500 women and girls attended camps nationwide throughout the year, far exceeding the RFU's initial target of 8,000.

Of those, 3,500 had never picked up a rugby ball before.

Women and girls interested in attending a Warrior Camp between January 12-28 should visit to find their local event.
