Ladies, have you ever fancied having a go at playing rugby, but weren’t sure it’s for you?
Newbridge Rugby Club’s ladies squad are offering all comers the chance to try out some oval ball action at an open evening which will be held next Wednesday, November 14.
The name of the game on the night will be to have some fun, and it will be a gentle introduction to the sport for those who have never played before.
The organisers say they are welcoming women of all ages - once they are over 18 - shapes, sizes and levels of fitness.
The training, added captain Kaylee Cogan would be great for local GAA and soccer players looking to keep up their fitness over the winter months, as the rugby season runs until next March.
However, just as welcome will be girls who have never played a team sport before, mums who want to get a bit fitter and those in their twenties and thirties - and even older! - who want to try something new. It would also be a great opportunity for those new to the area to make some new friends.
“Rugby is a great sport, as there is a place on the team for players of all shapes and sizes, no matter how big or small, fast or slow you are,” said Kaylee.
And those worried about the prospect of spending an hour a week nose-down in the mud will be glad to hear that the training sessions concentrate on fitness and ball skills, as well as having a bit of fun.
All are welcome to the club’s Rosetown training grounds (located between Athgarvan and Two-Mile-House) from 7.15pm next Wednesday evening, November 14.
