Woman catches rugby ball Copyright: © HSZ

"Rugby!? That's such a hard sport. I'm not built for it!" Don't worry. Rugby is a fast and physical team sport but also very fair and a game for all shapes and sizes. Both men and women play rugby in the classic 15-person and 7-person variations. The objective of the game is to carry the oval ball past the opposing team's goal line and touch it to the ground. Rugby training at University Sports Aachen is held in collaboration with the Rugby Club Aachen. This offer is targeted towards women and men, who train both separately and together. Experienced coaches teach the courses, in which general and game-specific fitness is promoted and a basic understanding of rugby is taught.
