Inclusive Rugby

Manchester Village Spartans RUFC are one of the world’s oldest Gay and Inclusive Rugby Clubs and are a founding member of International Gay Rugby (IGR)

We’ve helped hundreds of 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 inclusive rugby union or O2 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 more about our giving us a try here.

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