At the beginning of 2010 we became the Happy Grass Roots Partner of Rugby WA and the Emirates Western Force to help develop and grow rugby union in our home state.
As well as backing the big guys, we’re also helping kids to achieve their potential, with a focus on developing young talent in Western Australia through the Bankwest Rugby Academy.
To demonstrate our commitment to the juniors and this great sport, Bankwest has also become the major sponsor of the local Junior Rugby competition. As part of this initiative Bankwest has helped out with some much needed equipment including new goal post bolster pads, field of play markers and water bottles at all the junior rugby grounds across Perth. In addition, every junior player will also receive a pair of club specific playing shorts – that’s over 3,500 kids!
To celebrate our partnership all our customers can receive a discount off Emirates Western Force memberships, and we’re looking forward to the Super Rugby season kicking off in February.
