Hackney has lots of green space and it has many rugby pitches available for sports lovers in the area. Most of the rugby venues in the borough are grass and perhaps the most popular is Hackney Marches. Rugby Union is the most played version of the game, but the rugby pitches can also be hired out online for Rugby League. If you’re looking for non-contact versions of the game, then there is Tag and Touch available. These formats are growing in popularity and have a fun social scene.
