Mavericks RFC have a 25 year lease on a disused astro with floodlights which cannot be put to good use until the floodlights are repaired and the surface is cleared of the overgrown shrubs, a new fence is erected. Long term this would be perfect for a 4G pitch once funds are raised but in the short term clearing the site will make a huge difference and enable Mavericks to expand in size and have more young people playing rugby from the local community.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Mavericks RFC have already demonstrated both their commitment to rugby through building the number of teams and increasing the number of people playing rugby in only 5 years as well. In addition they have shown an amazing financial and volunteering commitment as a community from the self funding of a new clubhouse, fully renovating (new electrics, walls, ceiling, roof, kitchen, bar, toilets)...a disused burnt out cricket pavilion and in 5 weeks from generous donations of money but mainly free labour and materials and players and their families volunteering hours of their time for free to cover some of the finishing works such as painting. Mavericks are great ambassadors to the game and truly support the rugby values, being inclusive in all ways, setting the standard for other rugby clubs.
Steps to get it done:
Please help us to add even more value and impact to local people. The ultimate aim for Mavericks RFC is to smarten up the current environment as with did with the disused pavillion, continue to build the number of teams and with the ultimate aim of having a training and eventually 4G facility plus 2 grass pitches. Mavericks RFC can then expand the number of teams further and focus on some of the other areas of opportunity for the local community and surrounding areas e.g. walking rugby for the elderly, rugby for the disabled, girls rugby. By playing sport it helps to reduce obesity and mental illness in young people, giving them a safe environment and a strong community where they can be involved with the game of rugby, as a player, a coach, a referee or a supporter.
