A Kidlington women’s rugby team will hold a training camp for any women interested in trying rugby union next weekend.
To encourage women to kickstart their fitness routine in 2018, Gosford All Blacks Rugby Club will host a Warrior Camp on Saturday, January 20.
As part of England Rugby’s nationwide Inner Warrior campaign to increase female participation in rugby union, the rugby club wants to encourage women “to experience the dynamic, exhilarating sport of rugby for the first time within a fun-packed, commitment-free environment”.
The Warrior Camps aim to encourage more women and girls to play contact rugby, teaching participants key introductory skills and drills within a non-committal, social and fun environment.
Participants will be introduced to the basics of rugby, including passing, kicking and tackling, along with enjoyable fitness routines.
The two-hour session will take place at the club, at Stratfield Brake Sports Ground on Frieze Way, at 2pm.
