Estelle Love

Profile

Rugby came later in life for Estelle. In fact it was only six years ago when she helped establish the Wells Angels Girls Rugby Team, Wells RFC first ever U13-U18 girls rugby section. Estelle is still a driving force behind the Wells Angels. During her time as their manager/co-ordinator she has bought girls rugby to over 100 local girls, sometimes clustering with other clubs to ensure girls get to experience rugby – something that has historically, mainly been a privilege for just boys. Estelle is also a founding member of another set of girls teams: The Mendip Girls Rugby – Set up by a group of local clubs and coaches committed to helping girls play rugby. It’s safe to say that Estelle has made quite impact in only six years.

Estelle has…

  • Established the Wells Angels U13-U18 Girls Rugby section
  • Help set up and co-ordinate the Mendip Girls
  • Qualified as a UKCC Level 2 Rugby Coach
  • Qualified as a Level 1 Referee
  • Co-ordinated several successful after-school clubs (for girls) at Wells Blue School
  • Become Minis & Juniors Vice Chair at Wells RFC
  • Become a member of the Board of Directors at Wells RFC
  • Nominated for Mitsubishi Rugby Volunteer or the Year 2018

Not satisfied with just coaching and co-ordinating, Estelle played a season with Cheddar Ladies to experience competitive rugby first hand. Personally we think it was so she could go on tour to Dublin!

Estelle’s 2019 season challenge has been to take on and coach the U7s at Wells RFC, which is where you can find her 11am every Sunday morning coaching 24 U7s!
