Wigan Warriors Community Foundation and Wigan Council are pleased to add an additional session to their touch rugby offering for 2022.
Following the success of our Friday Men’s touch rugby sessions at Robin Park Arena and across RFL touch rugby pilot scheme festivals in the UK, Wigan Warriors Community Foundation are pleased to offer a new mixed Men’s and Women’s session on Wednesday evenings.
The FREE programme offers 12 weeks of touch rugby sessions, with the new Wednesday session offering nutrition support from 7:30-8pm followed by playing touch sessions 8-9pm.
As well as giving you the chance to enjoy some rugby, you can take advantage of the weekly nutritional advice to help you build a healthier lifestyle. Each week there will be a topic and an opportunity for people to ask questions which relate both to nutritional help and exercise.
On top of this, there will also be the opportunity to represent Wigan Warriors’ Community Foundation, taking on other club’s foundations at future rugby festival events! The first festival in Newcastle (19th March) will commence the start of a North West mini touch series with people from Wednesday and Friday sessions being given the opportunity to play competitive touch and a reward scheme enhancing our touch rugby program.
Health engagement officer, Patrick McLoughlin said: “Following the success of touch rugby in 2021 we are excited to extend our program with the addition of a new Wednesday evening session which will see the community foundation offer nutrition support and touch rugby playing opportunities to both Men and Women. The RFL touch rugby festivals have provided an opportunity for us to enhance our current offer and create a pathway for participants to represent their club.”
