Go on, give it a try

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - THINGS TO DO -

CHE­SHAM rugby club is gear­ing up for the World Cup by or­gan­is­ing free rugby taster ses­sion to pro­mote rugby for chil­dren and teenagers. With the Rugby World Cup due to start in just over two weeks, the club said the in­ter­est in rugby is boom­ing.

The Mi­nis and Ju­niors sec­tions of Che­sham Stags are plan­ning to cap­i­talise on the surge in in­ter­est by run­ning three free ‘Try It’ ses­sions for young­sters aged five to 18 on suc­ces­sive Sun­days this month for po­ten­tial new play­ers at Chiltern Hills Academy in Char­tridge Lane.

The ses­sions, on Septem­ber 6, Septem­ber 13 and Septem­ber 20 from 10am will fea­ture a va­ri­ety of drills de­signed for im­prov­ing fit­ness and im­prov­ing skills.

No ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary, so both new and ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers can at­tend.

Stags ju­nior chair­man Graeme Youngs said: “It does not mat­ter if you have not played be­fore, you’re play­ing for another team or if you are not sure whether you might like it or not, just come along and meet us.

“I think there will be a boom in the sport fol­low­ing the World Cup – it is great that there are so many op­por­tu­ni­ties within Che­sham and the town is so ac­tively in­volved.”

Che­sham is sup­ply­ing the ball teams for all the World Cup matches played in Bucks at the Milton Keynes sta­dium and the club has been cho­sen as the face of grass­roots rugby cam­paign by bill­board com­pany JC De­caux and will be fea­tured on bill­boards around the coun­try.

Any­one who wants to take part in the taster ses­sions should wear sports cloth­ing and train­ers/boots. Football boots are fine.

Po­ten­tial play­ers should email mand­jchair@che­sham­rug­by­club.com to check for avail­abil­ity and spe­cific times.

The length of the ses­sions de­pend on the age group but typ­i­cally last 90 min­utes.
