Walking rugby sessions at Hungerford

More news, no ads


There’s no question that the pace of rugby increases almost yearly – which is a bit of a problem for former players, who must feel like they’re slowing down at an even faster rate.

For those who can no longer beat Ollie Hassell-Collins on the outside, Hungerford Rugby Club may have the answer.

The Triangle Field club started a walking rugby section in May and organiser Rob Cox is delighted that it’s got off to a flying start.

He said: “Walking rugby is really growing in popularity and we realised that this was a good time to bring it to West Berkshire.

“We want to open up the game to as many people as possible.

“Everyone is welcome, from current and ex-players to those who’ve never picked up a rugby ball before.

“And this is not a male preserve; some of our best, most regular, players are women.

“Obviously, the pace is not the same as full-on rugby or even touch, but it’s a really good workout and great for fitness, coordination and quick thinking.”

Sessions take place on Friday afternoons and Wednesday evenings.
