They are staging trial sessions which are free for the first month and then just £2.50 per week.

A total of 13 girls turned up for the first one, to the delight of organisers.

The club are looking for girls to join their under-13 side, open to girls in Year 8 or below.

Any girl who is a little older but still keen can go along and find out about opportunities open at Bognor RFC.

They are also looking for girls to join their new under-11 team.

Most girls are trying rugby for the first time – and quickly loving it – while there are a few girls coming through from the mixed minis game.

The under-11 girls will play a seven-a-side contact game, suitable for beginners and experienced players alike. The under-13 girls will now be playing 12-a-side rugby, with beginners and experienced girls welcome.

The club’s qualified coaches work with all levels of ability to develop rugby skills, team building and a create great social experience.

Training generally takes place on Sundays from 10am to midday.

Girls’ rugby has a number of regular festivals, many of which Bognor enter. They also organise joint training and friendly fixtures whenever feasible.
