Trident Honda renews sponsorship of Weybridge Vandals and hands over record-breaking rugby balls

Trident Honda Managing Director, Richard Roberts, hands over record-breaking rugby balls to Ken Sewell, Chairman of the Weybridge Vandals

Trident Honda is delighted to announce that it has once again renewed and further extended its support for the Weybridge Vandals Rugby Club. The occasion was marked by the donation of a large bag of Gilbert rugby balls, used by Honda in its Guinness World Record for largest rugby ball mosaic.

Richard Roberts, Managing Director of Trident Honda, handed over the record-breaking balls to the Chairman of Weybridge Vandals, Ken Sewell, earlier today.

17 years supporting the Weybridge Vandals

2022 marks the 17th year since Trident Honda began its sponsorship of the local club. Last year saw Trident Honda extend its sponsorship to include a large pitch-side banner. This year Trident Honda has again extended its support by doubling its sponsorship commitment in support of Honda's multi-year commitment partnership with the RFU and England Rugby.

Richard Roberts explains:

By supporting grass-roots rugby, Trident Honda is once again showing its commitment to be an active member of the local community. The Vandals enjoy an outstanding reputation as a local club, and we are so proud to be extending our support once again. It was particularly special this year to be able to hand over some of the record-breaking rugby balls used in Honda's recent Guinness world record.

About the Weybridge Vandals RFC

'The Vandals' can be traced back to the London School of Economics in the early 1930's, when Frederick Monkhouse and John Scurr, both forwards in the college first team, issued an invitation addressed to all 'rugger' men throughout London University to attend a meeting at the Ship Tavern in Gate St, Holborn on 18 March 1932.

Weybridge Vandals caters for all age groups from Mini rugby at Under 5, through to Junior rugby up to Under 19, and three senior sides, including a 1st team playing at a respectable level within the London South West 2 league, with good coverage of games in the local press, and a veterans' side for those that just don't know when to hang up their boots!

The Club is always pleased to see new faces, whether as players, spectators, or volunteers who would like to get involved with the Club in some way.
