Louisville Women’s Rugby is a member of the non-profit Louisville Rugby Inc. We seek to promote the sport of rugby in the Louisville area and field competitive teams to represent the community in local, regional and national events and tournaments. Founded in 1996, Louisville Women’s Rugby is currently in rebuilding mode and is looking for new players. Fall and spring seasons pit 15-member squads against each other. Summer rugby features high-speed, 7-on-7 games. In addition, the team participates in numerous conditioning activities, fund-raisers and recruiting events throughout the year.
Louisville rugby players come from a wide cross-section of the community. College students and mothers with children play side-by-side. Engineers pass the ball off to carpenters, waitresses and teachers. Players range in size and experience, but all are committed to improving health and fitness in a team environment with the goal of putting a championship team on the field. Practices are held locally at Seneca Park and other venues. Games are played Saturdays at Cherokee Park and in the cities we visit.
