Yorkshire Carnegie’s community department are running weekly mixed ability sessions at Pontefract RUFC every Thursday between 10am -12.30noon.

The open training sessions are free to attend and are open to players of all abilities and those who have never played the game before. The sessions are followed by a chance to socialise with other players.

The sessions follow work by the Yorkshire Carnegie community team over the past few months in providing accessible rugby sessions to traditionally under-represented groups.  The aim is to then transition new players and volunteers into Pontefract RUFC, one of Yorkshire’s grassroots rugby clubs.

The delivery is part of Project Rugby, an initiative from Premiership Rugby, which aims to engage new audiences with rugby and stimulate a lifelong interest in the game.

Project Rugby is designed to increase participation in the game by people from traditionally underrepresented groups:  black, Asian and minority ethnic people, people from lower socio-economic backgrounds and people with disabilities.
