Project Rugby Festival at Allianz Park this Wednesday
This week Allianz Park will host its first ever Project Rugby Festival!
This Wednesday (18th April) the Saracens Sport Foundation’s five disABILITY hubs will compete in their first Project Rugby tag tournament.
Kicking off from 18H00 the festival will see the Letchworth Bravehearts Mixed Ability rugby team in action in a showcase game followed by all five hubs competing in a round robin. All teams will be competing for a ‘Spirit of Saracens’ award, presented to the team that best demonstrates the Saracens Core Values.
Project Rugby aims to increase participation in rugby from underrepresented groups, including the disabled community, through a new strand of rugby called Mixed Ability Rugby, designed to be played by 50% disabled participants and 50% mainstream participants. Participants have the choice to engage in touch/tag rugby or full contact depending on their personal preference.
