The easy way to start a rugby team

Rugby is one of the most popular sports in the country – and it is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, more and more people are enjoying the pastime than ever before. What does this mean? Well, it means that you shouldn’t have much of a problem gathering members to start your own rugby team. It’s actually a lot easier than you may think, and here are just five tips to help get you started.

Recruit members

The first thing you’ll want to do is get people to join your team. You can do this quite easily – not to mention cheaply – if you advertise on social media. You might even have some success just by using word of mouth if there’s enough interest in the local area.

Establish a schedule

Once you’ve got enough players signed up, you’ll all want to sit down and agree on a schedule. This means finding a day when it’s convenient for everyone to meet and a time for everyone to practice. You could also discuss which league you’d all like to join, depending on the level of competition you would like.

The pitch

Obviously you’ll need a pitch on which to train and host games. The best way to establish that you mean business is to invest in a rugby post. This is a key element that, while somewhat grand, is actually rather affordable. 

Sports equipment 

The main necessity that you’ll need is a Gilbert rugby ball. There’s always plenty to choose from and they all accommodate different budgets. If you really want to help your team perfect their craft, you could also purchase a kicking tee.

Good luck!

You should be on the road to success if you follow these five pointers closely. If you’re after any other equipment or accessories, you’ll be able to find all the items you need on Sportnetting.
