Bedford Blues Community are delighted to be linking with didi Rugby to bring our sport to the ages of 18 months to 6 year on a fantastic taster day on Saturday 27th May.

Classes start next Saturday with a FREE taster session at Goldington Road. Everyone is welcome, boys and girls, with nothing holding you to a further commitment, just come down to the Blues and see what it’s all about.

To book please call Vicky on 07812082375 or email Vicky@didirugby.com. Timings for each age group session are below:

  • 9 – 9:40 (18 months -3 years)
  • 9:40 – 10:20 (3-4 years)
  • 10:20 – 11 (4-6 years)

Didi rugby classes started in the Midlands in June 2015, but has expanded across the country with 800 children taking part each week.  The founder of didi rugby is Vicky Macqueen, retired England rugby international, level three rugby coach and mum of two young boys… who brought all her skills and experience together to form the didi rugby program.

The classes are multi skills based activities delivered through the tool of rugby with the simple aim to get children active, whilst enjoying themselves. Each session aims to instill fun, confidence and activity levels and developing the basic fundamentals of fitness and movement such as balance, coordination, agility and more. Children also learn the core RFU values; teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.

Commenting on the new initiative, Head of Blues Community, Ben Gulliver said: “This is a great way to both start kids in rugby early, but also aid their motor skills and social development. I’ve known Vicky for a long time and she has built a great program which we are looking forward to rolling out at the Blues.

“Come down and see for yourself next Saturday, you’re never too young to pick up a rugby ball.”
