Does it matter if you’ve played sports before?
No. Many of our players either played sports a very long time ago or not at all. Its never too late to learn, and the benefits of regular sports practice will amaze you.
Does it matter if you’re out of shape and afraid rugby is too demanding?
No, Rugby can be a demanding sport, but our regular weekly practices are designed to build the fitness levels of every player, no matter how out of shape you are. And you’ll find our kind of workouts to be fun and engaging, and inclusive to all players no matter what level of experience and/or fitness they bring to the Pitch.
