Pitch-up-and-play dates announced for south Devon

10 Aug 2017 12:56 | Sara Raine

DEVON RFU can announce a host of dates for pitch-up-and-play sessions this coming season.

Nine have already been pencilled in for the south Devon area.

These sessions are playing opportunities for players who are:

·         New to the game,

·         Returning to rugby after a long period of not playing

·         Old (typically over 40)

·         Social (don’t have the time, desire or ability to play league or merit table rugby)

 Players don’t need to get a team together (but it’s great if you can), but just turn up with your boots, shorts, socks and a gum shield and teams will be sorted on the day. The laws are ‘adjusted’ to suit the age, experience and abilities of the players.

A few drinks and food will be provided after the session.
