Come along and try rugby

Matlock Rugby Club’s mini and youth section is encouraging local youngsters whose interest in the sport has been raised by the recent Rugby World Cup to come down to Cromford Meadows and get involved.

The new season is already under way but if you have plenty of energy, want to make new friends and learn new skills, be part of a team, have fun and get fit, pop along on Sunday mornings.

Over 250 young players between 6-18 are already involved in the section, with ten team ranging from under sevens up to under 18s.

The teams train or play every Sunday morning during the season and have a fixture list for each age group against other local clubs mostly within Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire.

Anyone can join and the section is particularly interested in school boys and girls of any age who would like to learn to play rugby.

All abilities and age ranges are welcome, there are qualified and experienced coaches on hand and parental involvement is welcome.
