Guildfordians Minis, Youth & Girls
Boys and girls from age 3 to 18 are welcome to join us, our season runs from September until the start of May with training and matches take place on Sundays from 10am. Players are grouped according to their age at midnight on the 31st August each year. For example if you are 7 years old on the 31st Aug you will be in the U8s ( you will be 8 years old in the upcoming season ).
Being parents ourselves, we understand that children need to try different activities before committing, so we have "try before you join" policy so all newcomers can come along and take part for 3 weeks. After this, if they wish to continue we ask that you pay the appropriate membership fee or they can stop playing without charge.

We run several Touch rugby teams and have the largest touch section in Surrey. Touch rugby is a non contact form of rugby and is ideal for players of all ages from the age of 16 playing in mixed teams.
We play all year round and it is a great way to keep fix. We enter a number of tournaments each year playing against other Touch teams from all over the country.

Guildfordians Walking Rugby
Walking rugby is a competitive passing game played with a rugby ball suitable for ex-players, injured players, non-players of all ages, abilities and gender. It’s especially suitable for over 50s and great for cardio-vascular health. Just like touch rugby but slower. No running, no kicking and no tackling, this is an opportunity to have fun and gentle exercise. Anyone can play.
2018/19 saw a great start of walking rugby at Guildfordians and we look forward to another great season.
