Peter Vardy, the automotive retail group and Official Vehicle Partner of Scottish Rugby, helped provide inspiration to the Caledonian Crushers, Scotland’s leading wheelchair rugby team, by organising three members of the country’s national rugby side to attend a recent Crushers training session in Glasgow.
“The idea was to provide them with some tactical advice” said Scotland Rugby international Pat MacArthur. “But instead, we learned more than a thing or two about the special nuances of the game from the Crushers”.
Peter Vardy’s sponsorship of Scottish Rugby includes the provision of vehicles to help its coaches develop young players and assist the growth of the game at club and school level across Scotland.
Peter Vardy, CEO, said: “We have all seen the benefits that sport brings to communities throughout the country and we know also that wheelchair-based sports, like wheelchair rugby, can be fast and exciting”.
