Kent’s Diggerland Adventure Theme Park Sponsor Invicta Panthas Kids Rugby Team
Kent’s Diggerland Adventure Theme Park is sponsoring a rapidly growing Rugby League club in Kent.
The Invicta Panthas are one of only two Rugby League clubs in the county. Founded in January 2014, the club registered over 60 players across two age groups (U11 & U13’s), in its first season.
As from 26th February 2016, Diggerland is now sponsoring four of the clubs teams, the U12’s. U13’s, U14’s and U15’s.
The Panthers are a CASC (Community Amateur Sports Club) non-profit club, who aim to provide sporting opportunities to all members of the local community.
The clubs ambition is to be able to facilitate participation no matter what the player’s ability or circumstances. Indeed aside from helping the club to provide the facilities and equipment, a donation or sponsorship will enable the club to provide scholarship/part scholarship type memberships for players from families who genuinely struggle to afford to afford their child’s access to sport, and who otherwise might miss out. The scholarship/part scholarship type memberships, will not be based on the player’s size or ability, but purely on their economics situation.
Invicta Panthas Chairman, Rob Faux said ‘The Panthers are delighted to have entered into this partnership with Diggerland. Diggerland are all about delivering fun to families and children, which fits right into the Panthers ethos’.
Diggerland’s sponsorship will go towards a new kit and training equipment such as balls, cones, sprinting parachutes and tackle bags.
