Worcester RFC Mixed Ability Lead, Tom Reeves enthused "Wow! What can we say but we are truly
humbled to be recognised by Variety as a club of note.

"There are a good 7-10 of us involved in running these 2 mixed ability teams (men’s and women’s) and we're all volunteers who give up an awful lot of time to do this. It's a lovely recognition of what they do and what we've built over the last 6-7 years.

"To have recently launched our women’s team, win a UK Coaching Award AND now be shortlisted for another – we’re over the moon!"

Sarah Nichols, founder and Team Manager of the Women’s Mixed Ability section: "This is the icing on
the cake of what’s just been the most amazing year! Thank you Variety for our nomination.

"Inclusivity is at the heart of what we do Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm!"
