International Gay Rugby England (IGR) are excited to announce that, following a fantastic visit to this year’s Chester Pride (as part of the Summer Pride Tour of England supported by England Rugby and Spirit of Rugby 2012) we’ve uncovered plenty of interest within the LGBTQ+ community to establish a brand new, Inclusive Rugby Union club – Chester Centurions RUFC.
This new, inclusive rugby union club is a place where adults in and around Chester can give rugby a try regardless of gender, sexuality or rugby ability in a friendly environment with zero tolerance towards homophobia or bigotry.
Friday evening training sessions started a few weeks ago at Chester Rugby Club’s ground on Hare Lane but it isn’t too late to join in – with new starters expected each week and RFU coaches delivering training for all abilities.
We already have over 20 players. If you’re aged 18yrs+ and want to give rugby a tryl this Friday at 6.30pm, simply visit our Facebook Event page for more details and click going / send us a Private Message or email.
