Rugby Union (Women)

We are one of York's most diverse and successful clubs, with both of our two teams both performing well within our leagues, cup games and dominating year after year at Roses. Our 1st XVI went unbeaten last season not only progressing to tier 1 of BUCS league but also winning the Northern Conference Cup! 

Winners of Club of the Year 2017 and 1st team gaining Team of the Year 2018 at the York Sport Union Colours Ball, we are a welcoming and inclusive club and accept players of any ability - even if you've never picked up a rugby ball in your life! Our 1st XVI is a performance squad, but we don't trial, so just turn up at training and show us some passion and you'll be considered for one of our teams.

We don't just play rugby either. In between matches and training we make time for fantastic socials both themed and formal, drinking and non-drinking, throughout the year - perfect after a tough game when we need to unwind.

So if you're looking to try something new this year, or simply continue playing such a great sport then come down to training to see what we're all about. The only entry requirements are enthusiasm and willingness to learn something new - once you start you'll never look back.
