Waltham Forest is a great place to enjoy rugby. This east based borough has lots of rugby facilities available for those that live or work in the area. Most of the rugby pitches in Waltham Forest are grass, but there is an RFU movement to install more Artificial Grass Pitches to avoid the problems of winter weather. Changing rooms and showers can be found at select rugby venues to allow players to get changed before a game and wash the mud off following the final whistle. Touch Rugby and Tag Rugby are growing in popularity in Waltham Forest as they don’t involve contact and have excellent social scenes attached to the sport.
