Social Fitness at its Best
Touch Rugby at Old Reigatian RFC – a Gold Standard RFU / ETA Touch Centre.
A very social and fun way to exercise cunningly disguised as a team sport…
If you are like us and don’t think being crammed into a sweaty hall with 30 others doing the “downward dog” or looking at the backs of 20 lycra-clad static cyclists is the most fun or social way to exercise… then this could be for you.
Over the last few years, we have become recognised as South England’s top venue for year-round Touch Rugby through providing fun sessions, matches, tournaments and other social events all in a very inclusive environment at Old Reigatian RFC. We are very fortunate that the club has 4 flood-lit grass pitches, so we can play all year round. As such we regularly get 50-60 players at most sessions.
We are recognised as an RFU Gold Standard Touch Rugby Centre, also affiliated to the England Touch Association (ETA), we play according to the internationally recognised touch (FIT) rules. Touch Rugby continues to increase in popularity across the UK and Europe, though it has been massive for years “Down Under”. Being a Gold Standard Centre brings many benefits, not least of all, the chance to earn some great kit simply through attending sessions!
We have a regular “turn up and play” Monday night session from 7:15pm – 9pm suitable for all levels.
We pride ourselves in our inclusivity – everyone aged 14+ are invited to take part, all you need is some sports clothing, some outdoor trainers / soft stud boots and a willing-to-have-a-go attitude.
We also have a monthly “Friday Night Lights” competition for fixed teams that runs from September to April and culminates in a spring festival. During the summer we run additional sessions and competition events and are always pleased to host other clubs wishing to visit for a friendly competition.
There are also sessions for women over 35 age group and Walking Touch Rugby on Saturday mornings for those slightly less “fleet of foot”.
A fully inclusive and social team sport, at a top venue, getting exercise with friendly like-minded people followed by a thirst quencher at the fantastic ORRFC club-house……got to be better than an hour on the treadmill?
Membership is a very reasonable £15 per month / £180 per year.
