Wales Deaf Rugby Union (WDRU) are proud to announce Hearing Aid Solutions as their main sponsor for the upcoming season.
Alongside their sponsorship of the team kit, Hearing Aid Solutions will provide audiology services, and look to support the WRDU’s Community Programme. They will work with schools and deaf units across Wales to introduce children to rugby skills and encouraging them to take up the sport. The programme is additionally supported by the WRU regional development coaches.
The WDRU management team is run by a group of dedicated volunteers. Sponsorships of this kind are crucial in supporting the team on and off the pitch. Double World Champions, following the success of the recent tour to Australia, the team are hoping to continue their winning streak with an international tour to Norway in the Spring of 2019. They will be aiming for an eight consecutive win in January 2019 when playing against England Deaf for the Broadstreet Cup.
Hearing Aid Solutions are a multi-award-winning, independent, family run practice. We started up in Carmarthen 13 years ago but have since expanded and now cover the whole of South and West Wales.
Speaking of the sponsorship, Hearing Aid Solutions owner, Martyn Scott said “We are delighted to have the opportunity to support our National team in Deaf Rugby. We are passionate about helping the hard of hearing and passionate about rugby! For us, it was a natural fit”.
Dave Cobner, WDRU Chairman, said “We are thrilled that Hearing Aid Solutions are now our headline sponsor. Not only can we offer our players first class audiology testing, but we also have the support of a business that shares many of our values. It’s a really positive step for us as we look forward to raising the profile of Deaf rugby not just here in Wales but internationally.”
