Rydal Penrhos was delighted to host the Welsh Rugby Union Girls’ North Wales Winter Cup, which was a superb showcase of talent from the region.
Our facilities are just a small part of what Rydal Penrhos brings to the Colwyn Bay and Conwy county area. Our reputation is growing exponentially and was further boosted by the St Helen’s Rugby League squad using the school for their three-day preseason training camp before going on to secure yet another Super League title in 2022.
Rydal Penrhos is proud to host groups, clubs and organisations that engage and promote involvement from those in or out of the school community. This has proven hugely popular in the past and there are many more exciting things planned in the coming months.
Girls’ rugby in Wales is enjoying a huge explosion of interest and participation. The number playing rugby at all levels has gone from less than 200 to almost 10,000 in the space of years and this outstanding growth is only going to continue moving forward.
There are more opportunities than ever for girls to participate with 32 clusters around Wales and the age categories now go from under 7 to under 18 to cater for the increased demand across almost every Welsh community.
Another fine example of this came at Rydal Penrhos recently. The school was thrilled to host the Welsh Rugby Union‘s Girls North Wales Winter Cup, which saw teams from across the region compete against each other in pursuit of the overall prize.
This was incredibly well supported with plenty of outstanding rugby on show. Jacob Cousins and Josh Stewart, Sixth Form pupils at Rydal Penrhos, also played their part as referees after earning their qualification on a recent course.
We would like to congratulate Clwb Rygbi Nant Conwy on their well-deserved tournament triumph and every team that contributed to such a successful event. Rydal Penrhos looks forward to welcoming you back soon.
