intro to rugby

What is rugby? Rugby comes in lots of shapes and sizes - much like those who play it. From 15s full contact Rugby Union played by the Bruisers' Men's Inclusive team, 7s full contact played by the FLINTA* team to six-a-side touch rugby, it's a sport that has a place for everyone. 

At the Bruisers, we believe rugby is about bringing people together to enjoy a sport that, while physically demanding, is a lot of fun and helps you make friends for life. That's what we hope to show you in our Intro to Rugby session.

What will be covered?


In our Intro to Rugby session we'll go over the basics of rugby.

We'll start with a warm-up, followed by introductions to basic passing skills, some basic rules, and most importantly, how to score! We'll keep things simple while still making sure you have fun.

Throughout the training, experienced players will be available to answer your questions about rugby and our club. If you enjoy it, you'll be welcome to join one of our teams to continue your journey. 

The Next Intro to RUGBY session will be:

  • Can I come along if I've never played rugby before?
    Absolutely. The Intro to Rugby sessions are for everyone, regardless of experience, ability, body type, sexual orientation or gender identity. We believe rugby is a game for all and the purpose of these sessions is to introduce you to the team and the game we love.
  • What do I need to bring?
    The most important things is a can-do attitude. However, we'd also suggest some good running shoes (we're not expecting you to have rugby boots quite yet), a bottle of water, snacks in case you get hungry and a hand towel in case you get sweaty. Templehofer Feld can get quite muddy so we suggest you don't bring anything you don't want to get dirty.
  • Do I need a mouthguard?
    Rugby can be played in many different ways. During the Intro To Rugby sessions we play touch rugby, which is low contact. That means you won’t be tackled. After the Intro to Rugby, you can join our league teams (Men's* and FLINTA*), which do full contact tackling and require a mouthguard or our touch Rugby Team (for all Genders) which does not.
  • Do I need specific insurance to play rugby?
    The Bruisers are insured through the Landessportbund (Haftpflichtversicherung und Unfallversicherung), but this only for serious injuries. For all other injuries, you have to have your own German health insurance. Taking part in rugby is something you do at your own risk, so you should take any additional precautions you feel suit your own personal needs.
