Walking Rugby

Our Walking Rugby sessions are perfect for those over 50 and looking to get more active. As the name suggests, running is forbidden as is passing the ball higher than shoulder height. There are also no high tackles – or indeed any tackles – and, crucially, no scrums, rucks or mauls, making it perfect for all abilities!
