University of Plymouth Women's Rugby Football Club is a student-run rugby union team, competing in BUCS matches in our division throughout the West and South-West. Players of all abilities are welcomed to partake in competitive women's rugby and join us on weekly socials. We offer the opportunity to get fit, develop rugby skills and meet a great group of girls at university!
We train weekly on Monday evenings at Ivybridge RFC 7-9pm and play our BUCS matches on Wednesdays.
Please feel free to contact us on social media, via email or come and see us at our Freshers Fair stand to say hi!
Standard Membership: Joining UPWFRC with a standard membership will allow you to train, play matches and participate in socials.
Social Memberships: Joining UPWRFC with a social membership will allow you to be involved as a social member of the team. You will be able to participate in socials and go to training, you just won’t be able to play matches.
We have weekly socials on Wednesday nights that are hosted by our two brilliant Social Secs! The theme changes each week and we visit numerous different bars, pubs and clubs. Socials are a great way for the team to bond and spend time together off the pitch! We also host ‘sober socials’ which include post-match meals, bowling, beach days and much more!
We host multiple fundraising events throughout the year, organised by our wonderful Fundraising Secs, to raise money and awareness for our chosen charities.
We currently have one team that competes in the BUCS Western 2A league throughout the year. Our games are on Wednesday afternoons followed by our socials on Wednesday nights. At the end of our BUCS season this year we are hosting what is arguably the most important event of the year: VARSITY! 22 selected players compete against our local rivals, University of St Mark and St John (AKA MARJON). After winning Varsity 2022, we're really excited to keep our club growing and improving throughout this next season, ultimately to thrash MARJON at Varsity once again!
