Inclusive Rugby

Manchester Village Spartans RUFC, based at Sale Sports Club in Manchester, are the world’s second-ever Gay and Inclusive Rugby club and are a founding member of International Gay Rugby (IGR)

Our teams have helped hundreds of LGBTQ+ and straight players discover or return to rugby by promoting the sport through projects such as Comic Relief’s Try For Change or England Rugby’s Spirit of 2012 and we continue to recruit players to our club regardless of their gender, sexuality or rugby experience.

If you want to play Rugby Union or Inclusive Touch Rugby, we have a friendly squad for you to join. You don’t have to be gay to be a Spartan. You just have to have a good attitude.

Find out all about the club and the opportunities we have for players of Union or Inclusive Touch here.

You can also check out what we’ve been up to recently at our Club News page which is updated frequently.
