SOCIAL TOUCH RUGBY

Social touch rugby is a minimal contact version of Rugby League. This variant is open to any aged player, with any fitness level or sporting ability. The main difference between touch rugby and the traditional sport is that tackles are made by a removing a tag from the player’s belt.

We think there is a better way to getting fit and active, burning calories, building muscle tone and having fun with your friends without having to be a member of a gym.

If you want to get involved in playing touch rugby, then you’re in the right place!

Touch rugby is non-contact (a two-handed touch is as rough as it gets), so you shouldn’t get hurt, it is a great way to have fun, improve your fitness and meet people.

Men and women of all abilities, fitness levels, shapes, sizes and ages are welcome.

If you don’t know the game, don’t worry, you can pick it up quite easily and have some good fun and laughs along the way. We have new people coming along most weeks and you don’t need to commit to coming every week, just play if and when you can – you’ll love it.

OVER 50S PANTHER PLAN

We aim to deliver a brand-new project which tackles inactivity among adults over the age of 50. Delivering

multi-sport activity sessions which are accessible to all and can be adapted based on the needs of each.

individual to ensure that everyone can engage with the sessions. The activities include walking rugby and

football, yoga, aerobic exercises, tennis and dance.

We have chosen to deliver this project as there are few opportunities for people over the age of 50 to get

active, socialise and support their physical and mental well-being. Older people are typically excluded from

sports in our community as services are predominantly focused towards children and young people. Sports

teams and clubs in the area do not currently have senior or veterans’ teams which has led many to feel

forgotten and excluded. This has caused many over 50 to become inactive, isolated and without opportunities to engage in activities which aid their physical and mental well-being.

Through the power of sport, we hope to generate more opportunities for those over 50 to get active in our community.
