    I have another question – how can I get in touch?

    Who can play?

    Ladies who are looking to get fit, make friends and are between 18 and 100 years of age! 🙂

    How old/young do I need to be?

    You need to be over 18. The reason for this is that although we aren’t playing matches yet, we do train some tackling techniques and legally under 18s cannot train contact. There is no upper limit, so as long as you’re reasonably healthy, come along!

    How fit do I need to be?

    You don’t need to be ‘fit’, though you do need to be in reasonable health. If you haven’t exercised in a while, that should be fine and you’ll be surprised how quickly you progress. If you have an injury or a health issue that you think might stop you from giving it a go, get in touch and we’ll be happy to advise.

    What clothes should I wear?

    Normal fitness clothes are fine. Some of us wear running leggings; some of us prefer tracksuit bottoms. T-shirts, jumpers, hoodies, etc are great.

    In winter it does get quite chilly at times, especially when you first arrive and haven’t started moving yet – so even if you don’t normally feel the cold, wear at least two layers of bottoms and at least 3 layers of tops. If you feel the cold quite a bit, then grab as many layers as you can! There’s no shame in wearing 7 t-shirts and then taking some of them off as you start running around.

    Gloves, hats, caps etc are great too.

    What equipment do I need?

    Trainers are fine. If you have access to some, football or rugby boots will give you extra grip if it’s been raining.

    How much is it?

    You can come along for free a couple of times to make sure it’s for you. Once you’ve decided you love it (because you will! lol) then membership is £8.50 per month. Full details are available at the club house.

    How much is membership?

    Once you decide you like training, you’ll need to become a club member. There are a range of different memberships for one person or families (Full details are available at the club house) starting from £8.50.

    Can I try rugby out for free?

    Absolutely! We recommend coming and giving it a go first. You’ll love it. Book a place on our next session on our training page

    I wear glasses usually. Do I need to wear contacts?

    We don’t recommend wearing glasses during training – just in case. If you have contact lenses you can wear, that’s the best option. If not, and your sight allows, you may need to take your glasses off at certain points of training. Get in touch if you have questions about this.

    I have an injury, can I join in?

    If you have an injury, it might be best to contact us before booking a place on training. Visit our contact page and let us know some details so we can advise.

    Do I need a gum shield?

    If you have a gum shield, it might come in handy, but it’s not usually necessary. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for details of what this week’s training involves.

    Do I need rugby boots?

    If you have rugby boots, fab. If not, trainers or football boots are fine too. Football or rugby boots will give you extra grip if it’s been raining.

    What sort of rugby boots do I need?

    There are a wide range of rugby boots available from lots of stores at reasonable prices. You don’t need to spend a fortune if you decide you want to get some rugby boots before you train with us. Make sure they fit well, aren’t too tight and have been worn in before training. Remember, normal trainers are fine for your first sessions.

    How do I book?

    Book a place on our next session on our training page. You can also contact us on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

    When is training?

    Training is every Monday and Friday at 7.30pm to 9pm. Full details are available on our training page.

    Is there training outside of term time?

    Usually training is during school term time only. Contact us if you’re unsure or keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages. It’s really important to make sure you book a place if you want to train so that we can contact you if needed.

    Are you playing matches?

    We’re just starting out, and don’t quite have enough for a team yet – which is why we need you! Once we have enough players, we’ll start playing friendlies and then look at playing matches.

    Do you play touch rugby or full contact?

    We train both touch rugby and some full contact. Once we have enough team members, we may decide to have two teams – one touch rugby, one full contact.

    Do I need to commit to every Monday and Friday

    Not at all. We have lots of members who can only train on Mondays or can only train on Fridays. Just come along and give it a go!
