Wimbledon RFC will host the first ever Legends Rugby festival this summer, with fans getting the chance to play against Martin Johnson, Josh Lewsey, Martin Corry and Serge Betsen.

The family event will combine sport, entertainment and music, including a concert headlined by UB40.

Children, women and over 35s will have the chance to play against some of the biggest names in rugby, as well as being able to watch teams from Premiership clubs including Leicester Tigers, Harlequins, Worcester, London Welsh, Bristol and Saracens battle it out in a tens tournament.

Children can be entertained in the kids zone, with popular children’s entertainers Dazzle and Fizz on site.

The festival is in aid of Restart, a charity which supports professional players who have been forced to retire due to serious injury or illness.
