Community Foundation back walking rugby initiative

Warriors Community Foundation have teamed up with Bromsgrove RFC and Bromsgrove District Council to run walking rugby sessions.

The free sessions will be held on Fridays, starting on May 7, from 12.30pm to 1.30pm, on the lower field AstroTurf pitch at Bromsgrove Cricket, Hockey and Tennis Club in St Godwald’s Road, Aston Fields.

The Foundation will fund the project and cover the cost of pitch hire, equipment and coaching.
Walking rugby is slowed-down non-contact version of the sport which can be played by all ages and all abilities.

“Within the Foundation we believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to participate in sports without any barriers,” said Chris Stephenson, the Foundation’s Adapted Sports Lead.
