Sport and competition is something which has played a big role at Ulster over the years, the company once boasted a very successful football team! Nowadays, Ulster support a number of local golf tournaments, tennis and hockey clubs. It is our belief that an involvement in sport has many physical, social and emotional benefits within the community.
Ulster's largest role is as the corporate sponsor for Ulster Youth Rugby. The goal of the partnership is too involve more young people in the sport at both a high school and club level in order to build the depth and strength of talent within the province. Ulster Rugby have been working directly with schools to improve their rugby programmes and also encourage non-traditional rugby schools to make rugby a bigger part of their sports schedule. Since the beginning of the partnership, Ulster Youth rugby have seen an increase in the number of matches played and also a rise in the number of youth players registered to clubs. Ulster recently extended their partnership with Ulster Youth Rugby until the end of the 2016 season.
