From Team Swain to Team England
Posted: August 28 2015
The Swain Group prides itself on teamwork, grit and determination to succeed. These qualities are also pivotal to success at top level sporting events, and we are very proud to be supporting one of our own; Rebecca Wadhams (also affectionately known as ‘Boo’), who will be participating in the forthcoming Sainsbury’s 2015 UK School Games representing England U18s Ladies Rugby team in a four nations style tournament.
The Event is multi-disciplined across many sports, represented by ‘000’s of young people of school age and positioned as a mini-Olympics taking place between 3rd and 6th September at Manchester’s’ Armitage Centre.
“I’ve been playing Rugby since I was 5 and this is a truly exciting experience for me having not been involved with a tournament of this scale before. We have a solid team of 12 and the games are based on the ‘7’s’ format which is fast paced and requires lots of energy. We are going into the games determined to take the top spot!”, says Rebecca.
England U18s Ladies Rugby team is represented by individuals from all over the country. Rebecca plays in the South East division for ‘South East Academy’ playing across various grounds from Hertfordshire to Kent. The sport is also divisionalised with teams represented from across the length and breadth of the UK, coming together at organized tournaments. The South East Academy team has had a successful track record, winning their last tournament held earlier this year in Birmingham as well as winning all their games so far this season...an enviable record for any sporting team…or business!
“Here at Swain, we have a strong track record of supporting young people in their endeavours. Many of our valued employees started at an early age and have worked for the company for many years, developing their careers along the way. Part of this success is attributed to encouraging sporting pursuits outside of work. We are delighted to be supporting ‘Boo’ in her endeavours and wish her and the England U18’s Rugby team every success in the tournament”, Bob Swain, Chairman
