Saracens - The Launch of Rambling Rugby

Sep 25, 2017

The Launch of Rambling Rugby


Saracens Sport Foundation are very excited to be launching a new over 50’s pilot session this October – Rambling Rugby, a walking version of the game we all know and love!

As the name suggests, running is forbidden.  There are also no tackles, instead players can 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.  Players do need a certain degree of mobility; however, we will adapt sessions to accommodate complete beginners through to rugby veterans.  

A typical session can increase a player’s daily step count by between 5000 and 8000 steps (depending on numbers per team) so it’s a brilliant way to increase activity levels as well as an opportunity to take part in a team sport again.

All players need is a good pair of trainers, comfortably clothes and some water!

The details of the session are as follows:

Allianz Park, Hendon, NW4 1RL

Starting Tuesday 3rd October through to 14th November (weather dependent)

10.30-11.30am

£4 pay as you go (FIRST SESSION FREE)
