A slowed-down form of rugby is proving a great success across a range of ages at Fakenham since its start at the beginning of May.
Walking rugby is a much simpler version of the traditional game and less physical, and the aim is to participate, compete and most importantly, for players to enjoy themselves.
The group meets every Wednesday at Fakenham Rugby Club, based in Eckersley Drive, with the first session free. #
A spokesman said: "The group is typically 40pc ladies to 60pc men.
"This is a fun team game that is accessible to people of all ages and abilities. It is attractive to both ex-players and those who are completely new to the game.

"As the name suggests, players must walk, not run, but it can still be played at a good pace."
Newcomers are welcome on any Wednesday, but the club will be holding an Open Evening on August 21.
