If you're interested in playing University Rugby whether you are a beginner or an experienced player, come and get involved. Last year saw our skill level vary from county standard to having never thrown (or caught) a ball in their life.
Joining a sports team changes your university experience (it was the best thing I could've done in my first year) and we take our socialising just as seriously as our rugby (thank god!!)
Last year the Men's 1s saw a very positive and successful year:
- We run 02 touch on Friday night for players wanting to play and exercise without the full contact element, this for both mens and womens rugby, so all are welcome to attend.
- Successful running of Thomas Mulquin (Old Boys versus current Greenwich 1st team) where we successfully raised £1400 for the Wooden Spoon charity
- Retaining our place in a very tough league
We as team are not only mates on the pitch but off it as well. Even our coach has said he was surprised at how close-knit we were as a team. When not on the pitch or at training, players from UGRFC can regulary be found socialising together and with other sports teams.
We have attempted, very successfully, to make sure everyone gets lots of game time this season. So if you're worried about not being able to play then fear not!
COVID 19 may get in the way of games until January, however, we are still training to ensure that when we do start playing we will have that competitve edge to other teams.
We train every Monday at Well Hall Ground (286 from Greenwich campus to Well Hall Road) with a promt 7:30pm start on the astro training pitches. It is a 5 minute drive from Avery Hill Campus by car.
We play our matches on Wednesdays, normally with a kick off time of 2pm where we also play home games on Blackheaths First Team pitch.
