PROUD SPONSOR OF INDUSTRY NEWS INDUSTRYNEWS ‘Good sport’: Sliders UK supports Indian Schools Rugby Programme » » SLIDERS UK HAS continued its support for a pioneering programme to promote educational achievement by bringing rugby to some of India’s most deprived cities and districts. The Delhi Hurricanes School Rugby Development Programme is built on a model first pioneered in the UK by the Atlas Foundation. This promotes discipline and team working through the sport and has been shown to increase academic achievement in areas of social and economic deprivation here in the UK by 12 per cent. Sliders UK has continued its support for the programme this year through the sponsorship of the 2017 Tour and Festival of Rugby, which took place over the summer. Murphy first formed links
