Rugby Union Women


Welcome to UWE Women's Rugby!! 

We are a warm, friendly group of girls who welcome ALL new players! Whether a seasoned player or never picked up a ball before....we all started somewhere!

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 as well. Off the pitch we have weekly socials ending up at Pams, but meet up and socialise together outside of that too, even if its just hitting the library!

We arent just a team, we are a are guaranteed to make friends for life!

So pop and see us at the VIRTUAL Freshers Fair on Friday 9 October to learn more about everything on offer at The Students’ Union. There will be sports clubs, societies, freebies, competitions and more! Freshers’ Fair is FREE, and all students are welcome. So whatever your set up, wherever you are, sign-up now! ??

Keep the dates in your diaries!



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!! We will be doing a twist on this due to COVID but we will still have lots of fun activties for you to take part in!!

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

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!
