Free Summer Taster Sessions

If you are interested in playing rugby but not sure if you might like it, they will be running free taster sessions for all levels of experience at Hungerford Rugby Club on Sunday 30 July and 6/13/20 August from10:30am to 12:00pm. 

Complete beginners welcome. 

Please contact Rob Cox at if you require more details.

In September 2022 the club’s new girls’ section held their first training sessions for the under-12 and under-14 girls’ squads.

“We’ve always been sorry to say goodbye to our female players at age 11, when RFU regulations mean they can’t play in mixed teams,” Rob said. “We’ve been thinking about setting up a girls’ section for some time and our summer training sessions finally convinced us it made sense.

The junior section at Hungerford runs teams from under-6 to under-15 and all age groups are open to newcomers.

The club’s fees are the lowest in the area because, as Juniors Secretary Lou Evans says “We work hard to keep our fees low so that rugby is open to everyone. We’re very supportive as a club and also have bursaries for anyone struggling with membership or kit costs.”
