Ah, Vienna...

...means a lot to Spiders, as they triumph over European opposition.

Glasgow Spiders started the 2009 touch season in style, winning top honours at the Vienna touch tournament against teams from Vienna, Brussels, Munich, and other major European cities. The Viennese hosts put on a fantastic event, and hopefully some of the stunning weather will accompany the silverware back to Scotland.

Male and female absolute beginners needed in 2009

Glasgow Lions need men and women of all ages and fitness levels for their touch rugby sessions. On Saturdays throughout January and February 2009, 11am-2pm, we are holding events aimed at absolute beginners. 

We don't care if you've never caught or passed a ball - in fact that might be an advantage. We don't care if you drop it every time. In fact, we like it as it gives us something to help you with.

Whether you'd like to play casually, have the craic and just enjoy the exercise or are deadly serious about conquering the world and reversing the recession, we have something for everyone. Bring yourself, a pair of runners (or better still, a pair of astroturf shoes or moulded football boots) and a willingness to become slightly muddy to Glasgow Green and we'll at least give you a good time!

These Saturday events are a great chance to begin and learn touch rugby with other beginners with plenty of on-hand help from our Spanish, Australian and Irish coaches. And it's free! Here's the map.
