British Asian Rugby Association

The British Asian Rugby Association (BARA) is a dual code, inclusive, UK not-for-pro?t NGO of ten years standing. It has a history of campaigning for equality and inclusion for Asian communities (not exclusively) in rugby, and has delivered tangible projects which break down cultural and religious barriers and provide sporting bene?ts to a much under- represented minority ethnic community.

BARA’s Vision

For all Asian communities to have equal access, enjoyment and success through rugby.

BARA’s Objectives



    • To use the power of rugby at home and in south asian countries to create safe, inclusive programmes for children affected by poverty, con?ict or family breakdown to access opportunities in education, sport and key life-skills.


    • To use BARA’s status, experience and the role-models of its leaders and ambassadors to develop rugby- led programmes in marginalised communities within the UK and south asian nations, promoting social cohesion, education and health.


    • To campaign for home and overseas rugby unions, clubs and committees to recognise and deliver on their responsibilities for equal inclusion for minority ethnic communities.
