New Walking Rugby Session at East Riding Leisure Haltemprice (Field)

Tue, 19 Jul 2022

East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Health and Wellbeing Team are beginning new Walking Rugby sessions on Thursday, 28 July.

The sessions are taking place on the field attached to East Riding Leisure Haltemprice and will take place every Thursday from 28 July, with the first six weeks free of charge. The sessions will run from 11am-12noon.

The sessions are targeted for people over 50 and aim to provide fun, sociable rugby games and skills, which will aim to improve fitness for those who maybe previously played and would like a chance to throw a ball once again.

The sessions will be led by Mike Adlard of the Health and Wellbeing Team, who will provide casual organised walking rugby games and accommodate various fitness levels, providing low to mid intensity matches ideal for those who haven't played for a long time or who would just like to get fitter and meet new people.

Councillor Mike Medini, portfolio holder for cultural and leisure assets, said : "No matter what skill or fitness level you are, we would strongly recommend you give Walking Rugby a try! Come along and have fun whilst improving your fitness!"

Please note these sessions require suitable footwear and clothing for the sessions.
