Girls who fancy trying rugby are being invited to Peterborough Rugby Club in Fengate on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6.30pm throughout June, to get a taster of the sport.

Women's rugby is said to be the fastest-growing sport in the world, with the England team currently top of the world rankings, having won the Six Nations for the last six years.

The Peterborough club, whose girls' section is going into its 10th season, has teams at all of the age groups recognised by the RFU - the sport's governing body - under-18, under-16, under-14 and under-12.

With nearby rugby clubs such as Bourne, Huntingdon, Oundle, Peterborough Lions, Spalding, Stamford and Thorney not having any girls' teams, the Peterborough club welcomes girls from a big catchment area. Anyone aged 10 to 17 is welcome on the June evenings.

"These June sessions are all about having fun and introducing girls to rugby," said girls' section head coach Lee Clarke.

"We love winning - and we've done a lot of that over the last nine seasons - but our prime objective is to make sure our girls have a great time, make a great circle of friends away from their school and learn rugby's core values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship."

Around 75 girls currently enjoy regular rugby at the Peterborough club but there is always room for new recruits and anyone wanting to know more can contact:
