NEW "Rugby Basics & Return to Rugby" Programme

'Following the success and popularity of our Return to Rugby programme , we're going to be starting a new Return to Rugby (R2R) & Rugby Basics programme on 20th January.

Who's it for?

Designed for complete beginners and people who've played before at school or university, but perhaps not so recently, the programme will run over 4-6 weeks to introduce you to the basics of the game.  There is no pressure to start playing games on Saturdays until you feel you are ready and want to.

When and Where?

If you'd like to take part, come along on Wednesday 20th January between 7pm and 7.30pm ready to start at 7.30pm.  Just ask for Matt, our coach and say you're here for the Return to Rugby or Rugby Basics programme.  You'll find us on Millwall Park and our clubhouse is right next to Island Gardens DLR station in the railway arches.

What to bring

Gym kit, warm layers, shorts or gear you can get muddy in.  You'll need football or rugby boots after your first session or two but trainers are OK to start with if you don't have any.  Bring a gumshield if you have one, but again, not necessary for your first few sessions.  Some water to drink and a change of clothes for afterwards is a good idea.  (You are welcome to change in our bar area, but we only have one small shower available on training nights).


Those of you who've already been on our first R2R programme are welcome to continue on the programme to help us welcome a fresh wave of beginners & returners, or to join our regular training sessions as you prefer.

Get in touch

There's no need to email in advance, but if you want to, you might like to join our Return to Rugby Facebook group here, and you're welcome to email us at if you've got any questions.

We also recommend you sign up for club emails here so you don't miss out on updates. You might also want to like our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter or Instagram.  Tweet/Follow the conversation using #millwallrugby and #returntorugby.

Looking forward to welcoming you on 20th Jan.

Matt, Andrew, Robin, Tim, Andy
& all our new Return to Rugby/Rugby Basics Members
