Reading University ladies we want you! Are you a fresher coming to the University of Reading this year or someone who wants to try rugby? Taster sessions will be on the 26th September at 6.15 – meet us outside the new sports pavilion. Remember to look out for us at Fresher’s Fayre on the 21st and 22nd of September. If you watched team GB at the Rio games and want to keep the legacy alive then this is the sport for you. We have been lucky enough to be featured as a demo team on the popular show ‘Rugby Tonight’ alongside Jimmy Gopperth from London Wasps as well having our annual tour to exciting destinations like Prague, Salou and Dublin!

We are a developing squad open to all abilities from county players to complete beginners. We pride ourselves on our friendliness and team spirit, and are basically an extended family at university. We want girls of all shapes to take part in the sport so come and have a go at something different. You do not have to have any prior rugby experience although if you do it is always a bonus! We have a week of preseason from the 21st of September that includes two sessions a day – one fitness based, and one skills based.  We stand by our motto of ‘work hard play hard’, so although rugby is of course important we have lots of fun socials. Don’t be afraid to try something different, you won’t regret it!!
