Swindon Storm Expanding!
Swindon Storm hosted a weekend football experience at Stanley Park sports ground in Chippenham in pursuit
of spreading the game across Wiltshire.
The weekend brought people of all ages from a variety of backgrounds to the state of the art 3G pitch and was a great success.
The Storm coaches were all on hand to teach the rookie players the basics of different positions in the sport along with correct form tackling and blocking before setting them off in game type scenarios.
The players - who for the most part had never worn kit before – took to the sport well with powerful hits going on all across the field.
Overall the experience was enjoyable for all involved including Chippenham Rugby Player Ryan Surry who said:
“Great summer sport with some easily transferable skills, great contact and overall a good weekend”
Nick Ashton, another rookie who attended the event added:
“It’s a great way for anyone to keep in shape and take part in some hard hitting contact, weekend well spent”
