Return to Rugby & Rugby Basics Starts Tonight

Our first session of the new Return to Rugby programme starts this evening. Please arrive from 7pm for a 7.30pm start and ask for the Return to Rugby Programme when you get here.  Complete beginners are welcome as well as people who know how to play already.

You'll find us alongside Island Gardens DLR station just 8 mins from Canary Wharf or 5 mins from Greenwich.

We recommend you bring a bottle of water and wear studded football/rugby boots (plastic or metal if the ground is soft). If you don't have these, then trainers are fine.  If you have a gumshield bring it along, but if you don't have one, don't worry as you probably won't need one for a few weeks.

It might be rainy or soft underfoot tonight, so perhaps bring a change of clothes for afterwards.

Our clubhouse bar area will be open for changing before and afterwards as well as a beer after the session. Our shower facilities are quite limited however - there's just one small shower cubicle next to our loos.

About the programme

Return to Rugby is a new national programme that will run for at least 12 weeks over the World Cup period and is aimed at bringing people back into the game who haven't played for a long time.

At Millwall we started our Rugby Basics programme last year, with similar aims. But we are welcoming both men & women who are completely new to the game. This season we are going to run both programmes together, alongside our main training session, but tailor the activities specially for beginner/returner needs in mind.
