WHAT IS WALKING RUGBY
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.

Instead players are allowed to hold onto the ball for no more than three seconds before passing, keeping the pace moving and giving the other team an opportunity to intercept. No running allowed.

WHO IS IT FOR
Walking Rugby is for anyone thinking about trying rugby, returning to rugby from injury or just returning to rugby. Sessions are adapted to cater for all backgrounds and experiences of Rugby. Veterans of the game are welcome as are newcomers.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
As the touch rugby - £1 per session

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING/WEAR?
All equipment is provided. Participants must wear suitable clothing. Sessions will take place either outside. No studs/boots are required, just trainers.

WHO DELIVERS THE SESSION?
The Walking Rugby sessions will be delivered by a coach from NARFC and will use the rules of Walking Rugby developed by Age UK.

This is a condition of delivering Walking Sports. The feel of the sessions will be very much social and fun, whilst providing physical activity. Sessions will last one hour.

WHERE WILL WALKING RUGBY TAKE PLACE?
Our sessions take place on the main pitch at Rackerhayes.

INTERESTED?
If you're interested in attending one of our sessions all you need to do is turn up and play! If you have any questions at all please contact the club direct.
