Rugby (Women)


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 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 a weekly fitness and conditioning session that aims to provide a well rounded basic level of fitness whilst creating a chance to improve team bonding. 

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.
