Rugby Union (Women's)
We’ve all watched it on TV; why not get involved? It’s all about the team. Positions for every individual, regardless of shape, size and experience. We’re one of the most welcoming clubs, who provide a great stress relief and an opportunity to make life-long friends along the way. We cater for both experienced players and newcomers to the sport, through our varying teams.
Rugby is a full-contact sport; however, safety precautions are taken to ensure everyone's safety. You will be playing alongside others of a similar ability, which ensures a gradual introduction into the sport. We are currently fielding two teams in the BUCS league and 1 team in BUCS 7s and we also compete in cup games also throughout the season. We train as one group, however during specific drills we split according to your own judgement of your ability preventing a divide forming between the first and second teams.
Our team receive weekly strength and conditioning provided through the NTU Fitness Team and all BUCS players can access Physio at a discounted rate.
Training takes place at West Bridgford RFC on Monday evenings.
Our University rugby activator is Ben Edah.
