Rugby is one of the world’s fastest growing sports and has a large and passionate following in the UK.
There’s a form of rugby for everyone, no matter what your gender, experience level, size or shape. And, almost every town and village in England has a rugby club to join.
When you play rugby you’re not only increasing (or maintaining) your fitness and staying healthy, you’re joining a community of over 1 million players, coaches and referees across the country.
Rugby is a great way to become involved in your community, have fun, make friends and learn new skills.
For children getting them off the sofa and onto the rugby pitch brings a wide variety of physical, mental and social skills which will bode well for them as they reach adulthood and beyond.
The following reasons are often given as to why kids should play rugby but in most cases they also apply to adults:
- Improve physical health
- Help develop social skills
- Learn to lose (it’s not always about winning)
- Learn to win
- Equal opportunities (age/sex/ability)
- Build self-esteem and confidence
- Learn valuable life lessons
- Positive role models
- Make lifelong friends
- Being part of a team
- Respect (for team mates, opponents and officials)
- Help to reduce stress
New players are always welcome at Crouchley Lane from age 5 to 105.
