Uniting Through Rugby: The Bamboos United Initiative

Rugby has always been more than just a game; it’s a unifying force that brings people together from across the globe. Embodying this spirit, the Bamboos United project, initiated by 7 Bamboos RFC, is a remarkable effort to connect Germany and the UK through the passionate game of rugby.

Launched in 2017, this initiative aims to unite male and female rugby sevens players from Germany with their counterparts in the UK, fostering an environment of friendship, skill enhancement, and cross-cultural collaboration.

A Vision of Unity and Growth

Bamboos United is more than just a sports project; it’s a movement that encourages and supports German players to come to the UK to play rugby.

This not only strengthens British-German relationships through sport but also supports players in their personal and athletic development. In a reciprocal gesture, the project assists German clubs in sourcing British players, both in sevens and fifteens, to play in Germany.

This bilateral exchange fosters a deeper understanding and appreciation of different cultures and playing styles, enriching the rugby experience for all involved.

The Journey So Far

The project’s journey began with a tour to Germany and a joint venture with the local team Bataillon d’Amour. Since then, it has grown significantly, with numerous players from Germany coming to the UK to proudly represent 7 Bamboos RFC.

These players have not only contributed to the club’s success but also to the enriching tapestry of international rugby. They have brought their unique skills and perspectives, adding immense value to the club and the sport as a whole.

The Impact and the Stats

The statistics speak for themselves. The project has seen remarkable success, with a significant number of German players representing Bamboos RFC in the UK. These players have created wonderful memories and contributed to the success of the project, becoming faces of success in their own right.



Looking Ahead: 2024 and Beyond

The year 2024 is set to be a pivotal one for Bamboos United. The project aims to recruit talented female and male players from Germany to join the club in the UK.

This step will further strengthen the ties with German clubs and facilitate the exchange of UK players, contributing to their teams.

However, to make this initiative possible, Bamboos United is committed to raising a minimum of £1200 in funding. This financial support is crucial as it will cover travel expenses, accommodation, and essential equipment for the players.

The Power of Your Support

This transformative initiative relies heavily on the support of generous individuals. The cost of bringing each player from Germany to the UK is approximately £300, covering accommodation, catering, and essential team equipment. Your support is not just an investment in a project; it’s an investment in the future of passionate rugby players. It fosters connections that transcend borders and cultures, creating a lasting legacy of friendship, skill development, and international sports collaboration.
