A rugby club is offering women the chance to “unleash their inner warrior” by taking part in free, rugby focussed fitness sessions.

Harpenden Rugby Football Club is running the free sessions at its Warrior Camps throughout January, which are designed to build fitness while learning about the basics of rugby.

The sessions will take place over four to five consecutive weekends. Each session will be slightly different, building on the previous week whilst increasing confidence and skills under the guidance of experienced England Rugby community coaches.

Sarah Hunter, England Red Rose Captain said: “It can often be daunting to try a new sport or get the motivation needed to go along to the gym for the first time. That’s why Warrior Camps are the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself and as a result, you can have fun and get fit all at the same time! Warm up activities, learning passing, catching skills, and fitness drills are combined to create these unique and exciting sessions.

“Bringing a friend with you can also help with the nerves but don’t worry if not, you’ll still meet plenty of great ladies at the sessions. I’ve made friends for life!”

Steve Grainger, Rugby development director at the RFU added: “2019 was a great year for women’s rugby with the Red Roses winning the Six Nations Grand Slam and continuing their winning streak at the Quilter Internationals this autumn.

“What better inspiration for any girls and women who might want to get involved and try it for themselves. We welcome anyone interested to head down to their local Warrior Camp this January to enjoy a rugby taster session in a fun and welcoming environment.”

Sessions will take place every Saturday from January 11 to February 1 from 11:00am-12:00pm.
