An introduction to walking Touch Rugby

Walking Rugby is a much gentler version of the physically demanding game of rugby– but just as dynamic and fun. Generally, players don’t tackle each other but instead touch their opponents using their hands. Some clubs suggest no scrums, rucks, or mauls. There are different variations on the game, but that’s the best bit – you and your group can change the rules to suit how you want to play!

Why play Walking Rugby?

Great for people who want to be active and don’t mind getting a bit muddy, it’s a fantastic cardiovascular workout and can also help to improve your speed, agility, and strength. Plus, it’s an opportunity to meet new people without the risk of getting tackled to the floor! If you don’t fancy braving the outdoors, walking sports can be played inside all year round. You might not be playing in the Six Nations or Super League Grand Final, but you can still get a buzz by scoring a try.
