One of didi rugby’s most exciting launches in years will take place in August.
didi rugby Cornwall will fly out of the blocks in central Truro on Saturday 21 August.
Fun for all ages from 18 months to 6 years will run from 9am to 11.30am with a real family activities day being planned for all.
The launch will take place at Boscawen Park and will be attended by didi rugby founder and former England international, Vicky Macqueen.
It will also feature former England star and didi rugby ambassador, Heather Fisher who will be playing games with children and signing autographs.
The launch is the first phase of plans that are being put in place by didi rugby Cornwall owners Chris Morrison and Ross Denning to spread didi rugby far and wide throughout this rugby-mad county.
“Sports that are fun and engaging is what we’re all about. The fact that it is through rugby, a game that we have tremendous respect for is giant plus,” they said.
“Cornwall has a long history of producing great rugby talent, from its county representation in the national championships to professional and international representation from the likes of Phil Vickery, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Jack Nowell and Lucy Demaine to name a few.
Truro Rugby Club
“We are privileged to work with local rugby clubs and schools to bring the game to girls and boys from 18 months to 6 years.
“It’s a great privilege to be bringing the didi rugby brand to Cornwall. Vicky and the didi family have been nothing short of amazing and supportive on our journey to launching this great platform.”
didi rugby Cornwall have already formed a development link to Truro Rugby Club. Part of the didi ethos is to build partnerships with local clubs to offer youngsters a natural pathway to keep playing the game when they become too old for didi classes at the age of 7.
didi founder and CEO Vicky Macqueen said they were hoping to build links with other clubs in the county as soon as possible.
Getting children active
“Chris and Ross are keen to get as many children and parents involved in our wonderful sport as possible.
“They have a real passion for getting children active and having fun and have already been receiving some great sport from the local community as they put their plans in place.
“We can’t wait to get started at Boscawen Park.”

minis – 18 months to 3 years – 9-00am to 9.40am
juniors – 3 years to 4 years – 9.50am to 10.30am
