Rugby X Have a Go with Christchurch City Student Ambassadors

05 Sep Rugby X Have a Go with Christchurch City Student Ambassadors

ChristchurchNZ and the Canterbury Rugby Union are working together with the Christchurch City Student Ambassadors on a pilot RugbyX Have A Go sessions for international students.

60 students have participated in the programme, and found it really fun and interactive, and have learned a lot about the Rugby culture, many student appreciated the opportunity to meet others and connect with like-minded people too. The last workshop is on this Sunday at Pioneer Stadium at 3pm, which we will be held a graduation of RugbyX for those who participate the all three session.

What is Rugby X?

Rugby X is a brand-new non-contact indoor version of rugby designed for tertiary students to have fun and enjoy rugby in New Zealand. Canterbury Rugby Football Union (CRFU) is partnering with Christchurch NZ to pilot the game with current international students to test how it works and work out what variations of the game best suit student needs. This has never happened before in New Zealand and presents an exciting new opportunity for players of all backgrounds to engage with New Zealand’s national sport.

Who can play Rugby X?

If you are an international student that wants to participate in this fun indoor game and help the CRFU develop the next best indoor game, we want to meet you! We are looking for students that are keen to give things a go and provide feedback on what is fun and engaging for you and your peers.
