Walk this way… into Walking Rugby

Posted on

Halifax RUFC are delighted to announce that Walking Rugby has arrived in Halifax.

In partnership with Premiership Rugby Club, Sale Sharks, Halifax RUFC will be running weekly Walking Rugby sessions at Ovenden Park. 

Walking Rugby is a slower-paced game of touch rugby that is ideal for those who are aged 50 years and older or those who cannot play contact rugby anymore. This is a less physical, slower-paced version of touch rugby with adapted laws to suit participant needs. 

The sessions are aimed to give rugby playing opportunities for those who may have never played rugby before and those who played previously played and cannot play anymore and want to re-engage with rugby at a slower pace. Sessions are a great way to increase your social activity and make friends with like-minded people. 

The sessions at Ovenden Park, Keighley Road (HX2 8AR) are open to ALL – both men and women and there are no age limits. Best of all, this activity is absolutely FREE! 

Sessions will begin at 6:30 pm on Wednesdays from the 16th September and the Clubhouse will be open afterwards for refreshments. All activities will be COVID Secure.
