Competition: Rugby Union

In partnership with the Rugby Football Union, the Greater Manchester Local Organising Committee proudly presents the following competition:

  • Under 13 Girls Grapple Tackle Festival 
  • Under 15 Girls Grapple Tackle Festival

It is hoped that this event will encourage more girls to play and enjoy competitive Rugby and be used as a catalyst for ongoing participation and development. It supports the RFU's move towards more girls playing rugby.

Grapple Tackle is part contact rugby and replaces the Tag Rugby previously in the Summer Games.
