Walking sports teams are becoming very popular across the UK.  As people get older and less physically able walking sports is a great way to maintain a level of participation whilst having lots of fun with similar minded people. There is no high impact or strenuous activity that standard versions of the same games require.

Most of the sports have the same rules as standard versions only rather than running to get the ball or get to the next base, you walk. The most important rule of walking sport is that one foot must be on the ground at all times. 


Many teams include some kind of penalty for participants who run instead of walk, to avoid some players running and thereby making the game faster than it should be. Other than that, it is pretty much the same.

The great thing about this type of sport is that it’s open to all – men and women can play alongside each other, less physically-abled individuals can also join in, and everyone will benefit from getting moderate exercise in a social setting.


Walking Rugby offers players who may be less abled, elderly or more vulnerable the chance to play in a competitive game of Rugby. Our players may have a history of playing sport but are no longer able to run or jog, they may be living with a condition like dementia or they may just be unable due a variety of reasons to play in a normal sporting game. Walking Rugby offers participants a safe place to learn the skills of rugby at a slower pace and invites people of all ages to get involved with a focus on people not wanting to play full competitive sport.
