Imagine Promotes the RPA Open

Updated: September 02, 2011, 13:55

The RPA is the representative body and collective voice of professional rugby players in England.

Originally called The Professional Rugby Players' Association (PRA) it was founded in 1998 to look after the interests of all professional players, from Academy players to the superstars of the international game.

The Association was renamed The Rugby Players' Association (RPA) in October 2009, to reflect our expansion and increase in membership to include semi-professional and retired players as well as full time professionals.

Imagine Golf is pleased to Support the Rugby Players' Charity at The Rugby Open, Walton Heath Golf Club, Surrey.

Walton Heath Old Course is ranked in the top 100 courses in the world, and has hosted the 1981 Ryder Cup and five European Opens.

Players competing in previous Rugby Opens include Jeremy Guscott, Nick Easter, Joe Worsley, Mark Regan, Riki Flutey and Seilala Mapusua.

The Rugby Open is run in aid of the RPA Benevolent Fund, the Professional Players' Charity, established to provide financial help and practical support to players including those who have suffered hardship through serious injury and illness.
