MIXED ABILITY RUGBY WORLD TOURNAMENT MESSAGE

Published: 01/06/2015

I think a number of you will be aware that in August 2015 Yorkshire will host the first Mixed Ability Rugby World Tournament. The short 3 minute clip below illustrates the principles of Mixed Ability.

Yorkshire is very much the cradle of Mixed Ability Rugby in England, and since the founding of the Bumble Bees at Bradford and Bingley RFC in 2009 new teams have been formed in Halifax and Castleford RUFC's.

 

The tournament is free and we are particularly keen for the Rugby Family to welcome people from disabled communities into the sport.

 

Yours in Rugby,

Mark Goodwin, Bumble Bees RUFC Player/Manager, Director International Mixed Ability Sports, National Learning Disability and Autism 'Sporting Chance Award' Winner 2015.
