Rhino x University of Bath
Rhino will supply performance rugby at the University of Bath with their elite-level Vortex Pro match ball, as part of a new partnership that will also see them supply contact equipment to the 2024 BUCS Super Rugby semi-finalists.
The new collaboration with the University of Bath Rugby Student Performance Sport programme means the university’s rugby teams will have access to state-of-the-art training gear, including scrum machines, balls, and other essential equipment.
Aaron James, head of rugby at the University of Bath, said of the partnership: “We are thrilled to partner with Rhino Rugby, a brand synonymous with quality and innovation in rugby training, “This collaboration will allow us to continue to deliver a rugby environment that supports the development of players from the pre-elite to elite level of the sport.”

Keiron Blackburn, general manager, Rhino, commented:
 “The quality of university rugby in the UK is at an all-time high, and the University of Bath is right at the forefront of this, so we couldn’t be happier to be working with them across their rugby programme. 
“Not only will they have access to our world-renowned contact equipment, but they’ll also be using the latest elite-level Rhino rugby match balls, which are now used by over 80 rugby playing nations across the world.”
Rhino’s ball range is one of the most extensive in the game, and the Rhino Vortex Pro is the highest-spec ball, designed for international-standard competition. View the full range here.
