The Women’s Rugby Football Club at UW-Madison plays a competitive fall season against various DI colleges in the Midwest and a spring season in which we attend tournaments across the country. We always welcome new players. No experience is necessary!

In 1975, women of the Madison area formed what would later become the Women’s Rugby Football Club at UW-Madison, and the Wisconsin Women’s Rugby Fooball Club of the city of Madison. The team started as a mix of college students and city players who loved the sport. The team was wildy successful, fielding Midwest and USA all-star players, and a number of USA Eagles who played in World Cup games. In 1998, the team officially split into the Wisconsin Women’s Rugby Football Club (WWRFC) and the Women’s Rugby Football Club at UW-Madison.

Come join one of the University of Wisconsin’s most dynamic and competitive women’s club sports!
