The Gym Bristol is proud to announce a new partnership with Bristol Ladies, part of Bristol Rugby Club. The club fields two teams: the 1st XV a consistent Premiership side, and the 2nd XV a growing force in the Championship South West 2.
The partnership is the result of hard work by our Cabot Circus General Manager, Allyn Condon, Assistant Manager Dave Catchpole, and Sophie Hemming, the England and Bristol Ladies prop forward. We’ve provided two free 12 month memberships to two Spanish international players, Isobel Rico and Elena Redondo, who’ve been signed to Bristol Ladies this season.
Allyn, who knows more than a little about top level sporting competition as he’s only the second person to have represented Great Britain at both the summer and winter Olympic Games, commented: “We’re proud to be offering our first-rate facilities to a first-class pair of international rugby players.”
And they’re already making their presence known for Bristol, with Rico scoring tries in all of the opening games of the season. Here at The Gym we’re always keen to promote more participation in team sports, so if you’re interested in finding out more about Bristol Ladies and Bristol Rugby Club, head to www.bristolrugby.co.uk.
