Over 35 and Want to Travel the World Playing Rugby?

Join the MARS team! MARS is a "Golden Oldies" side (35 and above) formed in 1985 in the Philadelphia area. The majority of MARS players are or were associated with teams in the EPRU (but that is NOT a pre-requisite to join!) Since 1985, MARS has participated in all but one Golden Oldies Festival. Most recently the team went to the 21st World Golden Oldies Festival in Cardiff, Wales. The next festival will be in Christchurch, New Zealand on April 22-29, 2018.
If you are interested in joining us, please email Andy Smith at has21249@gmail.com
