Womens Rugby Union
Make your degree something to remember – have fun, get fit, make friends for life and be part of something really special. Women’s Rugby Union gives you the chance to do all this with weekly fixtures, spectacular socials and an incredible team spirit!
We welcome players from any level of skill – from playing at school or for a club to complete beginners. Many of our best players came to us never having touched a rugby ball before and our team has gone from strength to strength over the last few years producing some fantastic results, and we are now one of the largest women's clubs in the North West.
We train on the state-of-the-art 3G pitch at Wyncote Grounds twice a week. As well as developing individual and collective skill and fitness, our sessions create a strong team spirit which we pride ourselves on. We are very fortunate to have dedicated coaches who have proved it is only those who are committed to the team who will represent us on the pitch! We also get huge support from the RFU as our numbers continue to grow every season.
Week in week out we play in the BUCS League where we travel round university teams in the North West. As well as the league we compete in the BUCS Cup, Sevens tournaments, local festivals and each year we compete in Varsity. In 15/16 we were undefeated at home and gained promotion, also making it to the final of the cup. This allowed us to be awarded with the highest point scorers in BUCS for the University of Liverpool and the Most Improved Team at the summer Athletic Union Ball. In 16/17 we suffered some injury set backs and were unfortunately relegated but we are looking to rectify this this year!
Due to the huge number of women wanting to play we have entered a 2nd team into BUCS for the 17/18 season for the first time ever so there is ample opportunity for everyone to get some game time over the season!
Although rugby is our prime focus, the team’s social side is never to be overlooked! With regular nights out, wacky fancy dress, day trips, weekends away, annual dinners and an overseas tour, the social life which comes as a part of being on the team is, for many, one of the best things about their university experience.
Come and see us at the Fresher’s fair, contact any of our committee or simply pop along to one of our training sessions at Wyncote. Come and give it a go, and make the most of your university experience.
RUGBY. TRY IT. GET CONVERTED.
