The Wolves, part of Witney RFC, are a special needs tag rugby team for boys and girls aged 7 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 10.30 - 11.30 (season September to May).

We have a member base of 35 who attend regularly and who have a range of disabilities from down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism and mild 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.

The Wolves are led by three volunteer coaches and are, at the moment, working towards attending and taking part in a special needs tag rugby tournament, this year here in Witney. By attending the festival we have found the children gain self esteem, some independence and a sense of value and self worth.

We are continuously raising funds to provide kit for new members, a sports wheelchair and being able to send the team and their carers to the International Festival each year and are extremely grateful for all support given.
