didi Rugby Ambassadors

didi Rugby’s wonderful ambassadors share our passion for getting children involved in the sport of rugby.

They are also keen to promote the values that are right at the core of what we do.

We have Olympians, internationals, World Cup-winning players and coaches, British & Irish Lions and Aviva Premiership winners too, who are prepared to support us and give up their time as part of the didi family.

These ambassadors know exactly what is needed to get to the top – but they are also just as keen to promote the positive values of the sport to those children beginning their rugby journey with didi Rugby.

There are Women’s Rugby World Cup winners like Emily Scarratt, Vicky Fleetwood and Sarah Hunter.

World Cup-winning coaches like Gary Street and other professional coaches from the men’s game like Geordan Murphy (Leicester Tigers) and Graham Rowntree (British & Irish Lions, England and Harlequins).

Graham said he was a huge advocate of didi Rugby: “Having been involved with rugby at all levels my whole life, I totally believe that the values it instills in little ones to play fair, share with friends, and show respect for each other, as well as the obvious health and fitness benefits that are vital for youngsters.”

Leicester Tigers scrum-half Sam Harrison is still playing the game but is passionate about a didi Rugby class right on his doorstep which he takes his daughter to.

Away from rugby, former Leicester City and Scotland defender, Matt Elliott says he is a huge fan of getting kids involved in sport and author and broadcaster Rosemary Conley wanted to become an ambassador because it encourages a healthy and active lifestyle.

We are very proud to have such a large group of sporting professionals endorsing our didi Rugby programme.

didi ambassadors - Charlotte Pearce
Charlotte Pearce made her England debut in the 2018 Six Nations just seven years after she first picked up a rugby ball.

And while none of our didi rugby stars will be able to break that record, she is happy to become involved in sharing the values and fun of the sport with children.

Charlotte joined England colleague Amy Cokayne at the launch of didi rugby South Warwickshire in May 2018.

Earlier that year, she had made her international debut off the bench in England’s 42-7 win over Italy in Regio Emilia.

National training camp

She only began playing the game in her first year at Edge Hill University and joined her first club, Ormskirk the following season.

After postgraduate study at Loughborough University, Charlotte earned a contract with Loughborough Lightning and was a frequent try-scorer for them in the inaugural season of the Tyrrells Premier 15s, leading to regular national training camp call-ups in 2017.

Then her full debut arrived the following year. With a black belt in karate at the age of 11, this didi ambassador is not to be messed with and we are delighted she has joined the didi family for her big smile and her infectious energy around the kids.
