What is Walking Rugby?
Walking Rugby is intended to be a simple version of Rugby suitable for ex-players, injured players and non-players of all ages, abilities and genders. It is a touch rugby game developed to be an open and fun social sport for those looking to play an enjoyable, active and competitive passing game using a rugby ball. Most players will probably be approaching or past retirement age and no longer be able or prepared to indulge in full-on rugby as played by those younger. Sporting enthusiasts will enjoy the pace and competitiveness of the game, while former rugby or netball players will welcome the flexibility walking rugby offers.
