VIDEO: Walking Rugby Kicks Off At Ashton Gate

Bristol Sport Foundation's walking rugby programme is off to a flying start at Ashton Gate - and has already proved a big hit with its early participants. 

The programme, aimed at men and women over the age of 55, is in its second week and was launched in partnership with LinkAge.

LinkAge works with people over the age of 55 and local communities to facilitate inspiring social activities that enrich lives, reduce isolation and loneliness and promote active participation. 

Walking rugby takes place every Monday (10am-11am) at Ashton Gate Stadium - for more information, contact programme manager Kris Tavender (ktavender@bristolrugby.co.uk).
