School rugby clubs are becoming increasingly popular amongst young people, both boys and girls, and while school rugby teams were once only found in boy's public and grammar schools, times have changed.
Girls as well as boys are now playing school rugby games with children of all ages being encouraged to play. In fact, there's absolutely no reason why anybody wanting to try rugby shouldn't give it a try.
If a child's own school doesn't have a school rugby team, it's possible that a local rugby club will have a junior team with places available. By using the links on this website, you can easily find school rugby clubs and league clubs with children's teams in your area.
The game is said to have originated in Rugby School, a public school for boys in Warwickshire. During a game of football in the mid 19th century, a young man by the name of William Webb Ellis "took the ball in his arms and ran with it", thus changing the structure of the game into something closer to the school rugby game we know today.
As it was a school boy who 'invented' the game, it's only fair that school children should be offered the opportunity to participate in school rugby games through membership of their local school rugby clubs.
