Our Game

Walking Rugby is a competitive but non contact, passing game, tackles are made by a two handed touch (not push.) There are no rucks, mauls or line outs and scrums are a simplified passive way of restarting the game. Without the collisions and impacts of traditional rugby it is a game of strategy and tactics, suitable for men and women and most of all it is a great fun way of keeping fit.

Walking Rugby is suitable for older people, both women and men, people recovering from injury or illness. Many of our players have played rugby but this is not essential as we offer an induction programme suitable for new team members.

Games are played in two halves of 10 minutes each way, competitions are usually in Festival format playing several games over an afternoon.

Our Training Programme

We train on Tuesday mornings at 11am at Five Rivers Leisure Centre and on Thursdays at 6pm at Salisbury Rugby Club ( in the winter we move the Thursday session into Wyvern College Sports Hall at Laverstock). We occasionally have joint training sessions with other Walking Rugby Clubs e.g. this season Gloucester and Esher RFC.

Our History

Salisbury Walking Rugby got off the ground in Janurary 2017. Started by Pat Clash, one of our Salisbury RFC Directors, we were one of the founding Walking Rugby Clubs in Walking Rugby South West. Salisbury won the very first inter-club games against Bristol in May 2017. Walking Rugby is growing and we regularly play against south west clubs Topsham, Gloucester, Kingswood and Bristol.

We are proud to be part of Salisbury Rugby Football Club and are fully integrated with the club and subscribe to the core values of:
