Wimbledon leads the way with Inclusive Rugby

In the year when Wimbledon Rugby Club is celebrating its 150th year it is once again pioneering the growth of rugby in the community. It was a founder member of the RFU and its original captain L.J. Maton drafted the laws of the game. Now, in its anniversary year, one of the highlights has been the launch of its Inclusive Rugby section. It provides coaching to children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and disabilities and the group is run alongside the Under-6 to Under-18 Mini and Youth sections.

Wimbledon RFC have a strong, successful Minis section which thrives on the support of Coaches and Parents. The Minis are currently mixed, with boys and girls training together.

Pitch plan

Please park considerately
Wimbledon RFC is situated at the heart of a residential community. Please refer to our parking policy, park where you are asked (and more importantly please respect anyone asking you NOT to park in certain places). On-site parking is shown on the above pitch plan. If you arrive late you may have to park off-site as shown on the parking policy.

The rules we'll be playing in the festival
u7-u11 New Rules of Play
u12 Old Rules but with no conversions (except for sudden-death conversions)

Scoring for the festival
Three points for a win, one for a draw and none for a loss.
In the event of a tie for a league place, places will be decided in the following order:

1. Most tries scored,
2. Least tries conceded,
3. Finally, the toss of a coin, except for U12 which will be decided by sudden-death conversions at centre 15m line as follows: if the first team's player converts and the second team's does not then the first player’s team wins. Each player can only kick once. If it's still level after the regular age-group number of players in a team have completed conversions, then toss of a coin.

Note: the scoring and rules were updated Friday 2 October at 9pm to correct a couple of inconsistencies

Order your pix of your age groups with the Rugby World Cup trophy

There's even a pic of the club's coaches partaking in frankly disturbing lunges.
