Are you ready to play with the big boys? For years we've been cheering for our favourite rugby teams from the side lines, but now is the chance to get involved and be part of the action. The first ever Legends Rugby Festival is the chance to get down a dirty on the field.

On the 13th July, head down to Wimbledon Rugby Football Club (WRFC) for a full fledged day of sports, music, and family entertainment.

You will get to watch some of the top English Premiership clubs reignite their old rivalries on the pitch. Teams include the Harlequins, Leicester Tigers, Saracens, Worcester Warriors, London Welsh, and there are more to be confirmed.

Not only will you be able to watch the games, but you can join in as well. Family games include mini rugby for 10-12 year olds, a Women's 7 Tournament, and Family Tag Rugby. But if you are a veteran (which in this case means anyone over thirty-five) there is also a chance to play with the big boys. When you register your fifteen-man team (45 per person) you'll be able to choose between two types of matches. The Beer League is for those who just want to play for the fun of it, while the Champions League is for anyone who wants to relive their glory days and take part in some serious competition. Each league will have sixteen teams, with a maximum of five matches (lasting ten minutes), depending how far in the runnings you get. It is the opportunity to play alongside and against some of the best sportsmen in the English Premiership, including Martin Johnson, Serge Betsen, Josh Lewsey, and Martin Corry.

Aside from the rugby, there will be plenty of other entertainment too, such as a fancy dress competition, kids' interactive fun zone, a pimms & food tent, music, karoke, DJs, and headliner live band. Tickets are 35.
