To get as many children involved in didi rugby to create active, confident and skilful children which inspires a healthy active nation. Above all... didi rugby should create a happy fun environment for children and their parents or carers.
We want children from as early an age as possible to become physically active and therefore form good life long habits in relation to physical activity that will help them in later life.
Following the huge success of our didi Rugby opening in Swansea, it is fantastic to welcome the Wales Women’s team captain, Carys Phillips as our latest ambassador.
Carys is a hooker for the national team and also plays for Bristol and the Ospreys.
The Cardiff Metropolitan University graduate is the daughter of former Wales international Rowland Phillips.
She won her first international cap against Ireland in the Six Nations in 2013 and has captained her country for almost two years, amassing 36 caps in the process.
Carys said she was delighted to become a part of the didi family because it provides such a solid foundation for stars of the future.
“didi Rugby is important because it focuses on young children. It encourages them to pick up a ball and learn some core skills while having fun at the same time,” she said.
“didi Rugby will be brilliant for women’s rugby because it ensures a bright future by getting girls to join begin playing and a fantastic sport.”
Carys is one of a number of high-profile sports women who have recently become ambassadors of didi to support the launch of the Swansea franchise.
MBE Non Evans was at the Swansea opening while women’s internationals: Alecs Donovan, Amy Evans and Siwan Lillicrap will be adding their energy to didi over the coming months.
Welcome to the team!
