Veterans’ Rugby has played a significant role in the development of the game in the Gulf Region. Abu Dhabi Harlequins has a healthy and vibrant Veterans’ Section with players involved and playing for all of its representative sides and assisting and administrating throughout Junior and Senior elements of the Club.

The Veterans’ Team competes successfully in a number of standalone tournaments across the Region, and in 2014/15 won the Al Ain 10s and was runner-up in the Dubai 7s. The Team also undertakes one overseas tour per year and for 2015/16 will be providing significant manpower to the Abu Dhabi Quins Barbarians for their assault on the Community League. Should you be over 35 years old during this current season and are interested in playing Veterans’ Rugby, or indeed just wish to train and socialise with likeminded folks then please contact the Team Manager, Mike Campbell, at eddiewalsh86@me.com for further information. Go on, you know you want to!
