WHO ARE OUR Men's inclusive TEAm?
Our Men's inclusive team plays competitive rugby union. Games mainly take place on weekends around Berlin, but as the team is in the Bundesliga Nordost they can sometimes
play as far as Leipzig.
They train on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Training will mainly take place at Neue Krugallee, however, sometimes might be at Siemanstadt with our SG partner.
New members are always welcome - particularly those who have played rugby union before. Get in touch, we'd love for you to join the team!
Training takes place at 7pm Tuesdays and Thursdays at:
Neue Krugallee 219, 12437 Berlin
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.
