The Story So Far

The Story So Far.......

It all started back in 2012, some years since Vicky Macqueen had retired from international Rugby Union, having qualified as a level 3 rugby coach and having a successful career as a rugby coach rather than a player.

humble beginnings ...

It was that moment in her life after having her 2 children in 2015 she wanted to create an environment where children could enjoy a love for physical activity from a very early age, with the desire that it will promote a lifelong passion for exercise later in life, which is vital for health and wellbeing. Vicky had a serious life threatening infection in November 2103 in which she spent time in intensive care. When in recovery she was told by consultants that her fitness levels saved her life, this has only inspired Vicky further to spread the gospel of health and fitness to little ones all around the world.

my inspiration ...

She set out with the purpose that the children should take away from each session confidence, self-esteem and have had fun, this should define the core of all the activities, all wrapped through the tool of rugby.

To drive a sense of belonging to a group with a positive experience for the children something
Vicky feels strong about which she gained from her international days as a England rugby
player.

It is in the summer of 2015 didi rugby was conceived, starting in May with one session and
8 didi rugby stars, still in its infancy but now 800 didi rugby stars each week, in 3 regions of the country enjoy and have fun at a didi rugby sessions just over one year from its conception.
