We are a super friendly group who love to play rugby, have fun and don’t take ourselves too seriously. We have our own clubhouse and bar, and have regular social events.
We are always looking for new players to join our team. All are welcome – whether you’re an experienced player or never so much as touched a rugby ball!
We train on Tuesday evenings from 7pm to 8:30pm in Gladstone Park and Sundays from 12.30pm to 2pm when we don’t have a match (details on the calendar here). Get in touch if you want to join us!
NOTE: From 8th Jan 2019 – 12th Feb 2019 all Tuesday training will be at Crest Academy, on Crest Road, NW2 7SN. Sunday training will remain at Gladstone Park.
Do I need any experience?
We have players that had never touched a rugby ball to ladies that have played for several years, so we’re a really good mix and welcome players at all levels. Our main focus is to have fun, get fit through training, and be part of the social group we’ve made for ourselves in the club. We all love rugby, but we’re quite a relaxed team as well. We just want to enjoy ourselves and do the best we can. The ladies team is currently playing in the RFU Women’s National Challenge South East North 2, which is a development league and new players can get on the pitch as soon as they feel ready.
Does it cost anything?
There’s no charge to come down and train with the club. If you decide to join after trying it for a while, there’s an annual fee (ranging from £75 to £100) to register with the club and the RFU. There is also a charge of £5 on match days to cover general expenses, food, and kit washing.
When can I join?
Whenever you like! It doesn’t matter if it is halfway through the season or summer – there’s always something on and you’re welcome whenever suits you. We try to make all our sessions accessible and you are welcome to just rock up, though feel free to contact us beforehand so we can make sure you have the best time possible.
I’ve not played before, do I need any special kit?
You should be fine to try a training session in fitness clothes and trainers (that you don’t mind getting muddy). If you stick with it you’ll need rugby boots and a gum shield. Match shirts and shorts are provided by the club.
Do I need to be really fit?
We take players of all abilities so don’t worry about your current fitness level, we’re here to fix that!
