The Berkshire Unicorns are holding an open training session for players at Braywick Park on Thursday evening (May 13).
The session, which kicks off at 7.30pm, is open to anyone aged 18 or over.
The Unicorns were founded in 2016 and are an openly inclusive rugby club.
Its aim is to bring together players from the Berkshire and West London gay community, as well as straight players, to create an environment where members can gain confidence and self-respect through playing sport.
The club also tackles homophobia and negative stereotypes in the wider sporting community through its performances and sportsmanship both on and off the field.
It’s a team that caters for everyone, from beginners who’ve never played the game before to more experienced players who’re looking for a fun, social and competitive environment in which to play rugby.
The Unicorns currently compete in the IGR Southern League (International Gay Rugby) and are also fully affiliated by the Berkshire RFU.
They train at Maidenhead RFC on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7.30pm and are currently recruiting players of all abilities for their touch and contact teams. The membership is diverse, so players and supporters alike are both very welcome.
The Unicorns also recently signed a new sponsorship deal with Amdocs and have launched a new kit for the coming season.
New images have been released showing how Slough High Street could look if the redevelopment of the Queensmere Shopping Centre goes ahead.
