Play Women’s Rugby in London!
The Ladies Team are a development side currently playing in National Challenge 2 South East (Central). We welcome players of all abilities and pride ourselves in being a sociable and fun team!
Training is at Gladstone Park, except for Tuesday training sessions between 1st November 2022 – 1st February 2023 which will take place at Crest Academy 3G pitches. We also train on Sundays from 12.30pm to 2pm when we don’t have a match – check out our fixtures here.
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!
Our goal is to provide a friendly, supportive and empowering space to women from all walks of life, including a diverse set of nationalities, social classes and sexuality.
Get in touch if you want to join us!
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 playing rugby 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 your rugby team?
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 rugby 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 for rugby?
We take players of all abilities so don’t worry about your current fitness level, we’re here to fix that!
