Guildfordians are the Surrey Walking Rugby Champions!

Guildfordians are the Surrey Walking Rugby Champions!

On Saturday 30th April, 11 teams from 6 Surrey clubs, plus a few invited squads from old friends outside the county, came together for the inaugural Surrey Walking Rugby tournament, held this year at Esher RFC.

In a clean sweep, Guildfordians beat Wimbledon (2-1), Old Reigatians (3-1) Amesbury (4-1), Esher (2-1) and Chobham (4-2) to top their pool and meet old friends and rivals, Kingswood in the final. In a close fought match with both teams playing some superb rugby, it was Guildfordians who came through with a 4-3 victory to lift the Andrew Inwood trophy. Guildfordians' success was built on solid defence and praised by tournament organiser and Surrey Rugby vice-president Tyrone Lawless, as they conceded only nine tries for nineteen scored throughout the competition.

In the first walking rugby festival of the season, it was great to see so many players of all ages, gender and ability coming together to enjoy a fantastic mix of sport and social prowess and to see how walking rugby has grown throughout the county. In Guildfordians' first competitive game against Esher in 2019, there were just the two Surrey Clubs. Richmond are the latest club to reap the benefits of this all inclusive sport, bringing club numbers in the county up to 6 despite the recent challenges of the pandemic.

Guildfordians will be hosting next year's Surrey tournament and in the meantime have their own 2022 midsummer festival to look forward to at Stoke Park on Saturday 25th June.

Guildfordians would love to help other clubs and interested individuals get started with this “fit for all” version of the game. Please see our Walking Page for further information.
