WALKING rugby is launching at Salisbury RFC in the new year.

The game, which has been around for a couple of years, will start-up at Castle Road on Wednesday, January 4 (6.15pm).

It is aimed at both men and women who are 55 and over and wanting to play the game at a more relaxed pace.

There is no contact, running, tackling or offside.

At the first session, there will be free tea and coffee, a video and full explanation of the general rules.

Anyone interested in joining should email Pat Clash on clashpat@gmail.com, call 07985913732 or just turn up on the night.
