Women encouraged to give rugby a try

Banbridge RFC is throwing open the doors at their Open Evening on Wednesday September 25 and inviting all ladies and girls aged 16 and up to give rugby a try!

The Open Evening which kicks off at 7.30pm is a session of non-contact drills and games.

New players will receive great coaching that will bring you up to competitive game standard. You will learn everything you need to know.

If you are already a player and are moving to Banbridge then come along and introduce yourself - there are lots of positions up for grabs.

Some of the many benefits of rugby, including fun, fitness and friendship are that it also offers opportunities to represent your club, province and country.

Through the success of the Ireland Women’s team winning the Women’s Six Nations Grand Slam, and the 7s team success you could be in a World Cup team in 2018 or indeed in the Olympics in 2016 in Rio, Brazil

The Open evening will be taken by qualified coaches and representatives of the Ulster Women’s team.

You don’t need boots, tracksuit bottoms and trainers are fine.

So come along and ‘give rugby a try.’
