About Witney Wolves

Joint training with GAB SEND


The Wolves, part of Witney RFC, are a special needs Tag rugby team for boys and girls aged 8 and upwards.

Tag rugby is a safe, fun and exciting variation of non-contact rugby. Players wear belts around their waist and two Velcro tags are attached to each hip. We welcome new faces so come and join us and have some fun at Witney Rugby Club on Sunday mornings 11-12am (season September to May).

We have a member base of 25 who attend regularly and who have a range of disabilities from down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, ADHD and learning difficulties. Witney Wolves cater for all needs and abilities to provide the children with opportunities to grow in confidence, develop social skills, get fit and make friends. We also encourage our older players to get involved in coaching and gain qualifications on RFU courses.

The Wolves are led by a team of experienced volunteer coaches and regularly take part in tournaments and festivals in the UK and abroad.

We are continuously raising funds to provide kit for new members and some of our funds helps send the team and their carers to various events.
