The best way to keep up to date with Manchester Village Spartans RUFC


Enjoy a healthy start to 2018 with our Touch Rugby Sessions

7 months ago By Neil Mason

Our popular Touch Rugby sessions return on Monday 8th January.

“"Don't worry about your experience or how you may have found sports in the past, anyone can take up and learn rugby at any age and have a great time." ” Ben, Spartans O2 Touch

Try rugby in a non-contact environment and enjoy a healthy start to the new year.... It's all the fun with no scrum.

Touch Rugby is an ideal way to start playing rugby or to help you return to play after a time away from the game.

Learning and developing the core skills of - Passing, catching, footwork & evasion, attacking and defending while running around a lot and having fun!

As an 'O2 Touch' Rugby club, our Touch Rugby players can register with the O2 Touch Rugby app so that the more often they play, the more goodies they can claim from O2 such as branded playing tops and nice stuff like that. With this support, we're able to make learning Touch even more fun. We're even looking into bringing along a boombox to Touch Rugby training sessions to provide a motivating musical soundtrack on the sidelines - making it a bit more like Zumba with balls. We'll see how this one goes.

Our Touch Rugby sessions are for adults regardless of gender, rugby ability or sexuality and restart on the 8th January.

Message us for details and to confirm if you'd like to give it a go for free.
