Welcome to UTC Women's Rugby! We practice from 6-8 Mondays and Thursdays on Challenger Field. No experience necessary.
Established in the spring season of 2011, UTC Women's Rugby has grown to a full team of experienced players and rookies. We compete against women's clubs and college teams all over the south, including Auburn University, University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa, North Georgia and Knoxville. We have participated in skills camps with the Atlanta Harlequins and collegiate select side tryouts, as well as regional tournaments like Nash Bash in Nashville, TN.
