Pitch-up-and-play rugby

DEVON have scheduled 13 pitch-up-and-play sessions for the 2017/18 season.

These sessions are playing opportunities for male senior players (18+) 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.

Here is a list of the pitch-up-and-play events so far in Devon for 2017/18.

If successful the more fixtures are likely to be added.
