Join our popular and friendly, touch rugby training sessions. The training is divided into mixed-gender identity groups, based on ability or intention (i.e. Beginners-Pro, / Those looking to enjoy a more social sport or enhanced, more competitively-focused training).
Whether you’re an experienced player looking to return to rugby or a total beginner, looking to give rugby a try, Manchester Village Spartans RUFC, based at Sale Sports Club, have a place for you at our pioneering, Gay and Inclusive Rugby Union and Touch Rugby Club.
As the world’s second-ever LGBT+ Rugby Club and a founding member of International Gay Rugby (IGR) we’ve 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 regardless of their gender, sexuality or rugby experience.
You don’t have to be gay to be a Spartan. You just have to have a good attitude.
“A positive atmosphere, good coaching.”
“A great way to get fit.”
“Good fun great exercise.”
“Fitness. Teamwork. New skills. Social. Fun.”
It cannot be a more positive experience.
“A big part of my life for the last 5 years.”
“I love what it’s done for me and life in Manchester.”
