Billingham Rugby Football Club
Billingham Rugby Club approached Club Design to help formulate a club development plan that would enable the club to attract significant grant funding towards the construction of new facilities. The club was suffering from a three site existence, changing at a local football club, walking to hired rugby pitches and then socialising at a local working men’s club. The grant that was achieved for the new facilities, was (at the time) the largest award to a members club in the Cleveland region.
