The best way to keep up to date with Trafford MV RFCC



1 month ago By Wilf Dooley

We are looking for new participants to join our Walking Rugby sessions on the lush fields of Trafford MV

Summer is around the corner and bright sunny evening are the perfect time to have a walk about in the park.

Walking Rugby is proving a real success at MV giving an opportunity for older players and total novices to enjoy our sport at a slower pace and with minimal contact. It is ideal for both men and women to get involved.

We have a number of ladies playing who had never picked up a rugby ball until they played Walking Rugby - and they love it - attending week in week out.

We have a good core group of friendly players and numbers are picking up nicely with new players arriving frequently. New players are always welcome - rekindle your love for the game ! Great for total novices too who may want to get a taste - no pressure at all.

We are keen to welcome new players to keep our numbers up over the holiday periods and keep us enjoying our sport.

We now have over 20 players turning out regularly and the game is being enjoyed by all - would be good to see a few more getting involved so we can break into more teams and have a contest.

The sessions are suited to over 45's ideally (but open to anyone interested really) and does not involve any heavy physical contact and can be played by males and females alike.

You may want some gentle yet competitive exercise to ease you away from the TV or Trafford Centre, you may be recovering from illness and need to increase your exercise.

Whatever the reason you will be welcome at Trafford MV on Wednesday evenings at 6.30pm.

We are also have a Touch Rugby session on Thursday evenings to our schedule for those wanting a slightly faster pace of game - Same Time - Same Place.

Just look out for the older group of people enjoying sport and introduce yourself - for info contact Wilf Dooley on 01942 884542 or drop me a line at

There are changing facilities if required.

The sessions last for around an hour - in size bite chunks - and is followed by a social drink in MV's well stocked bar afterwards.
