Bath Rugby Foundation
Joe Aygul
Outreach Officer

Joe has always been inspired by Bath Rugby. Growing up locally and playing the sport, his passion for rugby came at a young age. He joined the Foundation in 2012 as a coaching apprentice, and has quickly scaled the ranks as a fully qualified Level 2 Coach in Rugby Union and Multi Skills. Joe currently plays for his local rugby club, and is the lead deliverer of our flagship Men’s Health programme, Move like a Pro.
“I joined the Foundation because I relate to the nature of its work. It’s a real pleasure to be able to work in my community, helping people to engage and achieve through sport and education. Our inclusion work has a particular place in my hear as my little brother is autistic and suffers from anxiety. Although there have been difficult times, he always makes me laugh and helps me unwind. He inspires me to be the happiest person I can be and to always be proactive. Move like a Pro is my favourite project. It’s the first time the Foundation has worked with older men to improve their physical health – but also their mental wellbeing. My aim is to be considered one of the leading community coaches in the country. Inspiring others to follow my path and help create a happier and healthier community in the process.”
