Rugby is everyone’s game, and there is a game for everyone.

There is a type of rugby and a level of competition that is right for everyone - whether it’s 15-a-side, casual touch rugby or even walking rugby! It’s a fantastic way to keep fit, improve your mental well-being and develop transferrable skills. Let rugby inspire you and be a part of the game that brings the nation together.

Perhaps your child is an international star of the future, like Scotland’s Stuart Hogg or Scotland Women’s Jade Konkel? Or maybe you’re looking for a casual run-around and the opportunity to make new friends? Either way, finding your nearest club is the best place to start – and there’ll be plenty going on over the course of the season!
