Hellingly mini and junior rugby are actively recruiting new players to join our existing
squads, the age range is from 5-14 years old, each age group is trained by RFU
qualified coaches, and the teams regularly take part in rugby festivals and friendly
fixtures both home and away. Fees are just £2 per week for a two hour session or
just £50 per year. Taster sessions are free and you can enjoy a coffee and bacon roll in
the warm clubhouse whilst your child burns off energy and has some fun.
