Women can try out touch rugby for free.

Maldon Rugby Club Ladies, in association with Maldon District Council, are holding the sessions at Promenade Park, Maldon, on Mondays from 6.30pm to 8pm for the next five weeks.

Touch rugby is a gentler, non contact form perfect for those who love the pace and excitement of contact but not the rough and tumble of tackles, rucks and scrums.

No previous experience is needed as qualified coaches will tailor their training programme for newcomers.
