A strong team are only as strong as their socials. And here at UWE Rugby, we think our socials are pretty strong. Socials are a chance for everyone to get together as a team and get to know each other better to grow the bonds between us as a club and meet new people outside of the club as well. Socials will take place every Wednesday night, organised by our social secs and will be posted on our Facebook group page or other committee members. We attend the weekly sports night at Pam Pam's Bristol, Organised by Sharkies, not before meeting all together at The White Harte. You can purchase your tickets on Fixr. There will be other social events such as days out to events such as Race Days and away trips for the Six Nations. Furthermore we will be having charity events, dinners and awards evenings throughout the year.
