Building on the success of our ladies teams in cementing our club as the go-to place for ladies rugby in the area, we are re-launching our girls section on the 18th of April 2021. If you are 12 - 17 and want to have fun, meet your friends (and make friends for life) and get fit while learning to play rugby we would be delighted for you to come along for some taster sessions until the end of May for free.

 

It is free for the rest of the season?

You read that correctly, we are giving something back to the local area and we are very keen to create an addition to our well-established rugby club. So, from the 18th of April to the end of May, we are offering free sessions to all players who join and train with our girls' teams.

 

Do I need to buy any fancy equipment

The beauty of rugby, unlike many other sports, is that you don’t need lots of fancy expensive equipment to play, all you need is a pair of trainers and a mouthguard, we will provide everything else.

I’m keen to join, what do I need to do to sign up?

To join us, please email your details to GirlsRugby@wallingfordrugbyclub.com and we will let you know what to do next

 

Where will we be playing?

Please come to the Hithercroft Sports Park, Wallingford, OX10 9RB on the 18th April in time to start at 11:30

 

Why is girls rugby important to the club?

Our club is backing the relaunch and our Director of Rugby and Mini’s and Juniors Chairman cannot wait for the 18th April

 

“I have been involved in creating sporting pathways and girls rugby development across the county for several years and I am delighted to be re-launching the girls' section at WRFC. We already have a very successful ladies team and excellent female coaches across the club and it was one of the core pledges in my role as Director of Rugby to create a pathway from U6 – Ladies Rugby and retain the talent we develop at the club and I am delighted to have bridged the gap from Mini’s Rugby to Senior Ladies and beyond for our girls.” – Shane Harrison, WRFC Director of Rugby

 

“We have always had a good mix of girls across our mini’s section over the years, but post U11 we had no provision for girls meaning that our girls left and went to other clubs in the area. Now with the creation of our girls' section we have a pathway from U6 to senior ladies Rugby, including well-established links to some of the elite teams should you wish to pursue a career in rugby” - Paul O’Neill M& J chairman
