Welcome to UWE Women's Rugby 

We are a friendly group of girls training and playing rugby competitively to represent our university and welcome ALL new players.

It doesn't matter if you have never picked up a rugby ball, many of the members who can now play excellently had never tried rugby before university. We welcome players of all abilities and will never turn anyone down who wants to join. Rugby is a great way to get involved more in uni, make a whole range of new friends and perfect for that extra bit of fitness we all need.

I can guarantee you that you will make some unforgettable memories within this team and you will not regret joining... Training, Games, Trips, Socials and more!

Socials

One thing we can pride ourselves on, if not for our rugby skills, is for our ability to throw a great social. From superheroes to the whole cast of the nativity we know how to have a laugh while looking like muppets. 

Our Rugby Socials occur every other Wednesday night and usually require fancy dress. The crazier the better!!

Being part of this sports team also means you can represent you university at the UWE Sports Ball and Awards.

Events

This past year we have been lucky enough to go to some exciting new places and we hope to continue this again.

Rugby Development Days - These days let us combine with other universities and be trained by different coaches giving us a chance to make friends further afield and improve our skills. These days are usually fun filled and very competitive!!

Bournemouth 7s - At the end of the rugby season we all pack up our alcohol and head down to Bournemouth for an incredible weekend or music, camping and playing a bit of rugby sevens if we're not too hungover. It's an incredible weekend that you don't want to miss out on!

Croatia Tour- This year we are going on tour to the amazing Croatia with a few of the other UWE teams. We will be playing Rugby and exploring the place so get your passport ready for the 9th of april til the 15th!!
