'21 by 21' - A new campaign for everyone in Rugby League and women's sport


21 by 21 has a single aim - to get 21,000 girls and women playing rugby league by 2021

Working together in Rugby League and across women's sport, we can get 21,000 women and girls playing Rugby League by 2021 - the year of our home Rugby League World Cup. 

21 by 21 needs everyone.


Here’s how you can get involved:

Clubs, schools and universities can apply for funding for kit to start new teams, or to create more welcoming environments for Women's Rugby League
