    Hey guys,

    I want to get into rugby, I played it a bit in school but I practically have no experience, I don't seem to find anywhere for adult beginners though.

    Any advice?

    Oh I am from the UK btw

    You're in Kingston so you're nearest club is probably Twickenham - they play in Hampton. Rosslyn Park's probably only 1 bus ride away, as are Richmond, London Scottish, London Welsh,and London Irish (Amateur).

    Just looked on http://www.rugbyinlondon.com/main.html,I didn't realise we had quite so many clubs round here (Londons Exiles & French,Thamesians,there's even a London Nigerian). Adding in those that are in Surrey not London http://www.surreyrugby.com/pages/pv.asp?p=surrey221 & you are in the area with probably the highest concentration of Rugby clubs in Britain, if not the world.
    The above links have phone numbers & email addresses , contact a few & see if they take beginners .

    Tombo, you can always try the Kings Cross Steelers RFC, admittedly in East London (near West Ham station)

    It's a primarily gay club. And the website is www.kxsrfc.com, also on Facebook and twitter.
