Walking Rugby To Kick Off At Kingswood RFC

2 months ago By Alan Bell

We now truly provide rugby for any age, gender and ability at Kingswood RFC

Kingswood RFC are extremely proud to announce that the club has teamed up with Bristol Rugby to become a centre for a new version of the beautiful game, Walking Rugby! The club will be Bristol's East Hub for Walking Rugby, open to anyone in the area affiliated to any club.

Aimed at the Over 55's of any gender and ability, Walking Rugby is a RFU sponsored, non-contact version of the game that is played at a slower pace to the traditional Touch Rugby game. However, we've heard that it certainly helps get the heart-rate going!

Walking Rugby at Kingswood RFC kicks off on Wednesday 24th May at 6.30pm (BS15 9RA)

Bristol Rugby will not only be supplying all the kit required, but a Bristol Coach will be attending the first 6 sessions to help guide the players in this exciting new sport.

So if you are over 55 and wish to get back to chucking the egg around, then come and join us on the 24th May at Kingswood RFC (If you are over 50 and wish to partake, please get in touch)

For more information, please contact John Thomson at john.i.m.thomson@outlook.com or on 07954 164 590

Walking Rugby was launched at Bristol RFC towards the end of last year. Take a look at this promotional video.
