British Asian Rugby Association (BARA)

The rugby world is looking at ways of increasing the growth of rugby and one of the ways the British Asian Rugby Association (BARA) wants to contribute is by encouraging and supporting more people from the South Asian communities living in the UK & Ireland and abroad, to be given the opportunities at all levels.

Although rugby governing bodies, professional and amateur clubs have been striving to attain multi cultural diversity within the game, they have had limited success in tapping into the untapped potential within the South Asian communities. BARA was created to attempt to redress the balance, working alongside rugby bodies and other relevant organisations.

BARA¡¯s principle aims are to provide positive role models, break down cultural & religious barriers, promote community integration, personal development, healthy living and encouraging participation in sport & physical activity especially in rugby.

BARA was launched in the City of Bradford, September 2004, under the auspices of the Bradford Council¡¯s Sport & Leisure Service, the Youth Charter, the Rugby Football Union, the Rugby Football League & Sport England.
