Philadelphia Women

Philadelphia Women's Rugby Football Club (PWRFC) was founded in 1976, making it the most established women's rugby club in the Philadelphia area. PWRFC currently fields a competitive Senior side as well as Developmental side that compete in 15's in the fall and spring and 7's in the summer. Our Senior side competes in NCR4 (East Coast) Division I and our Developmental side competes against Division I and II sides. Our Senior side is highly competitive and in the 2012 season, PWRFC finished as one of the top 4 teams at the national playoffs.

We are based in center city Philadelphia with a centrally located practice facility and a dedicated rugby pitch for all home games. We practice on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and play a competitive schedule against teams up and down the east coast. Philadelphia Women's Rugby is made up of a group of over 30 players with various levels of experience. Some have played for many years, while others just joined us this year. We boast several USA Women's National Team pool players, USA U23 Women's National Team players, and MARFU and EPRU select side players. PWRFC aims to support all levels of play and aspirations.
