A new walking touch rugby group for men and women over 50 is being launched by Edinburgh BATS rugby at Raeburn Place. Information from organisers below - contact them for more details.
Walking touch rugby is a non-running, non-contact version of rugby union for men and women. This new initiative is designed to provide over-50s who are looking to become more active with a fun, healthy and safe way to get some exercise in the fresh air and enjoy the benefits of a team sport. The sessions will be fully supervised by professional coaches and previous rugby experience is not required.
The hour-long sessions, which will cost just £2 per person, will take place on Monday mornings at 10:00, starting from 16 April.
Tea and coffee will be available in the clubhouse after the sessions to give people a chance to socialise.
Other than trainers, no specialist equipment is required; just remember to dress comfortably and for the weather. No booking is required. If you are interested, just turn up at Raeburn Place (entrance at the corner of Comely Bank Road and North Park Terrace) a little before 10.00 on Monday 16 April and be prepared to have a great time.
