Carlisle Cougars invite all women to try rugby at an free open evening on 10th of March at the rugby club on Warwick Road. Rugby is a sport for all.
The Cougars have a mix of players with over ten years experience to those who have only started playing this season. You don’t need to be fit to start playing, and if you are tall or short, fast or strong you can play a key role in the team.
“Rugby is a great team game. Its a good sport to get into if you play other sports, and want to try something different, or if you just want to try something new” said Lucy Meadley, captain of the Cougars.
Playing rugby is also a great way to meet new people. “Players come from every walk of life, and range in age from 18 to over 40.” The Cougars play in a league called Championship North 2, against teams from Preston, Sheffield, Scunthorpe and clubs in the North East.
Now is a good time to join the team as a number of friendly tournaments are coming up over the next couple of months. Four Cougars players are also representing the North East of England this year, which is the first step on the pathway to playing for England.
The session on the 10th of March, is a great way to see if you would like to play the sport. You need a tracksuit, or shorts and a sweat shirt and rugby or football boots if you have them. If not trainers will do.
Showers are available afterwards and you will be more than welcome to pop in to the club house for a drink after the session. Please contact Lucy to register an interest or for more information at email@example.com or on mobile 07912110785.
