Touch Rugby has finally arrived in Wigan and Leigh for men and women over the age of 16.

A ten week programme of touch rugby sessions have been organised by the Wigan Sports Development Unit and these take place at Robin Park Arena starting on Wednesday 20th June at 6.30pm.

At the cost of ONLY £2 a week this is a great opportunity to come along and enjoy the summer weather.

This ten week programme is open for people who enjoy the game of rugby league in any capacity but may not want to play for a local team or club AS WELL as those who do or did play for local teams and clubs!

The emphasis on these ten weeks is enjoyment and FUN!!

If you are a veteran player but have still got "IT" then this could be a chance to shrug off those cobwebs and show them young uns how its really done.

Come down with your friends and family to throw our special Touch Rugby Balls around.

The origins of Touch Rugby can be traced back to Australia in the 1960's where it was used as a warm up game for rugby codes. The simplicity of this game is unique; all you need is a rugby ball, a space to play and a group of friends.

Touch Rugby is a fast moving minimal contact evasive game that is played throughout the world by men and women of all ages and skill levels.

The game is similar to rugby but without the tackling, scrums, and kicking.

This fast, simple and exciting game promotes the fundamental skills of running, handling, evasion and support play, whilst developing basis principles of attack and defence, without the fear of getting hurt.

Touch Rugby is suitable for both beginners and experienced players. You can play in either men's, women's or mixed divisions.

So come on!! Get down to Robin Park on the 20th June or any Wednesday after that to show off your skills.

Tell your friends, your family or even your enemies what's happening and get down there.

At only £2 a week it's a bargain!!!
