About didi rugby Worcester
Alex Matthews – didi rugby Worcester
World Cup winner Worcester Women’s Rugby star Alex Matthews has joined the didi rugby Worcester team.
Alex has been part of the England XVs and Sevens set-up for almost a decade now but had her world thrown upside down when the England Sevens set-up became a casualty of recent coronavirus-related cuts by the Rugby Union (RFU).
Determined to ‘give something back’ to the sport that had made her what she is today, Alex, who has already done some work with didi rugby Reading, began speaking to didi rugby CEO Vicky Macqueen after signing for the Warriors in the Women’s Premier XVs this season.
A partnership was formed and didi rugby Worcester was born to get young children aged 18 months to 6 years playing rugby, learning new skills and having fun.
Alex Matthews says…
“Facing a new future, I wanted to make sure that I am doing something that I have passion for and then didi rugby came along.”
“I have already seen the power of didi rugby and the kids learn so much from it, without even knowing about it. It gets them active and they always have fun. It’s a tremendously well-run and well-organised programme at didi and I am really looking forward to getting involved.”
Vicky Macqueen added: “It’s just amazing to have Alex involved in this launch.”
