Based in Cardiff, alongside her sporting career, Elinor is extremely passionate about using rugby to inspire and support young people and works full time as a coach and mentor for the charity School of Hard Knocks.

I am extremely grateful for the continued support of Paramount over the past few years of my rugby career. As amateurs, juggling full time work with an international rugby career can prove very challenging, but Paramount’s support makes that challenge more manageable.

Their trust and faith in me as a player during a huge year leading up to the 2021 Rugby World Cup, gives me great encouragement and I look forward to the journey ahead with their full support.

— Elinor Snowsill

As an avid supporter of Bristol Bears Men and Women’s teams, I am thrilled that we will be sponsoring Elinor through the next season of her incredible rugby career. She has already achieved tremendous success and we look forward to visiting Shaftesbury Park, when we can, to show our support to Elinor and the rest of the team.
