The club has a determined approach to the future and strong ambitions to make the club sustainable and an attractive summer rugby option for those who want it. Vipers have a growing female squad and continue to look for more players with a view to playing friendlies when possible and then enter a league next year. The male squad has great numbers but anyone interested is invited to come along on Monday evenings to try Rugby League out at training. Next year with the right numbers there could be 2 male teams playing competitive rugby league.
Anglian Vipers aim to provide the community with the highest level of Rugby League it can achieve within the level of support available. It will encourage the growth of community and school based Rugby League in Norfolk and Suffolk. We intend to develop, as quickly as possible, to provide teams of all genders and abilities. We already have a sound partnership with Wymondham RFC and have a basic understanding to build a strong relationship with a local school and a senior rugby league club. The club wants to grow and secure the future with sustainable partnerships from the community. To achieve this great effort is being placed on obtaining independence with it’s own playing and training facility. This remains our primary fundraising target.
Vipers continues to develop its range of outlets for exposure for our club and is active on Facebook. Twitter, Instagram and (under construction) a YouTube channel.
We try hard to get into the main newspapers and you may already have seen articles in the EDP and heard about the Viper’s on local BBC radio and even the BBC and ITV TV channels.
The build up to this year’s, delayed from 2021, Rugby League World Cup with the Men’s Women’s and Wheelchair tournaments are being played simultaneously across the UK.
Anglian Vipers are looking to strengthen the club through more players and attracting volunteers to help run the club so that we can make the match day experience something that people want to come and see. We intend to try and arrange matches on Friday nights under the floodlights at Wymondham with activities for children and food outlets and making use of the social facilities at Wymondham RFC.
