Ottawa Wolves Hosting Public Open House For Rugby Newcomers

The Ottawa Wolves are hosting a Public Open House for Rugby on September 18, at the University of Ottawa’s Mark Anthony field from 1PM to 4PM. This could be the perfect opportunity for you if you’ve never played the game and always wanted to see what it’s about.

After our Nation’s Women’s took home Bronze for Rugby 7s at the 2016 Olympics, we’ve seen quite the rise in interest in rugby! That’s why the Ottawa Wolves will be hosting a Rugby Open House on September 18th at the Minto Sports Complex. We invite any and all to come watch, try and sign up for all the rugby possibilities available to them in Ottawa. From full tackle 15s, to 7s, to simple touch rugby! Let us facilitate and encourage your interest in the great sport of Rugby!
