On April 28th 2021 the first ever Aldi Play Rugby RugbyAthon took place with over 70 schools involved.

The Aldi Play Rugby Rugbyathon is about giving every child in a participating school the chance to play rugby on the same day.

Using class pods and COVID-19 safety bubbles children were active through fun rugby games and activities over the course of a school day.
