COMMUNITY: SBiTC continue partnership with Coventry Bears to run Touch Rugby sessions for adult women

23 June 2017

Sky Blues in the Community continue partnership with Coventry Bears’ “Bears in the Community CIC” to run Touch Rugby sessions for adult women in Coventry as part of the ‘In it Together’ project...

This project is funded by Sport England and aims to provide sport and physical activity sessions in an informal and engaging way, removing some of the barriers that prevent women taking part.

In it Together gives women an opportunity to try out a range of activities on a weekly basis. All sessions are for females only and encourage women to have fun and socialise whilst getting active together.

One of the activities that In It Together are re-launching this year is a programme of Touch Rugby sessions. This was a highly enjoyed session last year, with very positive feedback from local women saying that ‘they never knew rugby would be so much fun’.

So, ladies, let’s tell you about Touch Rugby:

What is Touch Rugby? Touch Rugby is minimal-contact Rugby (no ‘tackling’ allowed). It looks very similar to Rugby just without the tackling, scrumming and kicking. Anyone can play!

Why is Touch Rugby good for you? It is a team sport, so you’ll meet plenty of other people and no doubt make some new friends. It’s suitable for women of all shapes and sizes. You will also improve your fitness and ball handling skills. Oh and it’s pretty fun too!

What do you need to take part in Touch Rugby? Not a lot! You can wear something you are comfortable being active in – we always recommend wearing a pair of trainers. You’ll need a drink too – to keep you hydrated.

Fancy giving it a go? Sky Blues in the Community will be running FREE women-only Touch Rugby sessions on Wednesday evenings at Longford Park in Coventry starting on the 5th July (6:45-8:15pm).

If you want to sign up to take part in the programme, please contact Imogen Green via Telephone: 024 7678 6349 or Email: imogen.green@ccfc.co.uk
