Walking Rugby is a fun team game that is accessible to people of all ages and abilities. Whether you are an established player or you’re new to the game, Walking Rugby is a much simpler version of the traditional rugby game. Less physical than a standard game of rugby, the aim is to participate, compete and most importantly, enjoy yourself.
An Overview of Walking Rugby
As the name suggests, running is forbidden as is passing the ball higher than shoulder height. There are also no high tackles – or indeed any tackles – and, crucially, no scrums, rucks or mauls.
Instead players are allowed to hold onto the ball for no more than three seconds before passing, keeping the pace moving and giving the other team an opportunity to intercept. No running allowed.
