The University of York Women's Rugby Club are undeniably proud to boast the University's most successful sports team, and won Club of the Year 2020 at the York Sport Union Colours Ball. Our first team compete at an elite level in the Northern Premiership, having made York Sport history upon their promotion to this league 2 years ago, after 2 undefeated seasons! Additionally, our second team have just achieved promotion into North division 2 after an immensely successful season. Our two BUCS teams continue to perform well within their leagues year after year and dominate at Roses, most recently defeating Lancaster 91-0 and 87-0 in 2019.
Winners of Club of the Year in 2020 and 2017 and Team of the Year in 2019 and 2018 at the York Sport Union Colours Ball, we are an incredibly inclusive club and welcome players of any ability - even if you've never picked up a rugby ball in your life! The club provides opportunities for all players regardless of experience, and have most recently created a development team to allow new players to learn and play competitive rugby without competing in BUCS. Our first team are a performance squad and the University's premier sports team, however 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!
