Rugby (QMBL Women)

Queen Mary, University Of London (QMUL)




QMBL Women’s Rugby is a friendly and competitive club for women wishing to try something new at university. We cater to all skill levels, starting with those of you who have never picked up a rugby ball before to those that are seasoned players. We hold regular training sessions each week to help improve and develop our fitness, rugby and team skills. Training is delivered in a fun and friendly atmosphere and primarily gives members the opportunity to stay active. Additionally, there is an option to attend bi-weekly strength and conditioning sessions for those who wish to engage in weight based training through the club. QMBL Women’s Rugby also opens up another fundamental aspect of university life, by not only providing physical training but by also having fun weekly social events open to all members. Taster SessionTaster sessions (TBC) Sunday 30th September 2018 Time: 11.30am Location: Stepney Green ParkA casual day where everyone can meet the team, beginners can learn some basic skills and more experienced players can practice with the team.Bring sportswear (trainers, tracksuit bottoms/shorts etc) and boots/gumshield if you have them.The team is selected weekly from the club members based on commitment to training sessions.TrainingMondays, 19.00 - 21.00, East London Rugby Club (West Ham).Equipment: People who choose to become members will need their own boots, gumshields and training wear (shorts etc).
