Players are wanted for social touch rugby at Hyde Park. This takes place every Wednesday starting from 10 April at 18.00; and all abilities welcome (most of us have never played before!).
The game is very simple and we are playing to have fun and get fit rather than be competitive. If you are interested in playing or just want to give it a try email Chris.
