At Lewes Ladies’ RFC you can find competitive, full-contact rugby played in a fun and inclusive environment. It doesn’t matter if you were scoring tries in the womb, or if you don’t know your rucks from your mauls: all levels of ability, experience and fitness are welcome.
Whether you’re in it for that feeling of winning a game, or the fitness, or even just the hard-earned pint after a match, we’d love to have you on board. Some of us are top try scorers and have only been here for a week, some of us have been playing for years and we still can’t master anything more than the basics. We’ve all come together because we play rugby for a reason, and we welcome anyone who loves rugby (or thinks they could love it) regardless of your sporting background and experience.
Drop us an email on: firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in trying us out!
What, when, where?
In 2017/2018 we are playing in National Championship 2 which allows us to play challenging and exciting rugby. We also have a more relaxed team for anyone who's not quite ready for championship or wants a more social environment. There really is a place for everyone at Lewes. We train on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the Stanley Turner ground in Lewes. Our fantastic social secretary also makes sure that there are loads of opportunities to get to know one another without the studs. Games take place most Sundays, at home in Lewes or an hour or so away at our oppositions' grounds.
We're also on Facebook! What are you waiting for? Come join!
Playing for Lewes will also give you the opportunity to develop your rugby beyond club level. The RFUW is really working hard to make the County experience better quality and more competitive for Senior women's rugby players, and Sussex RFU is hugely supportive of Women’s and Girls’ development.
Playing for your county is a significant achievement and Lewes RFC will support you in achieving your goals and ambitions. Speak to your Player’s Representative, Jess, for more information about how you can best be supported.
