Speaking on the free sessions, Men’s engagement officer, Patrick Mcloughlin said: “As we reach a year on from our first session after the COVID Pandemic it’s great to see the demand for social sessions which allows men and women over 18 access to a free program with the aim to increase participation across the borough.

“With the recent success of our RFL festival at Robin park it’s great to see sessions grow and player from 18-68 develop and learn a new way to enjoy our sport.”
