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 fields both a Women’s Club Division I and Women's Club Division III 15s side in addition to both a competitive and social Summer 7s team. Philly DI competes in the DI East league (Albany, Boston, Charlotte, Northern Virginia, Philly, and Raleigh) and Philly DIII competes in the EPRU DIII league consisting of Lehigh Valley, South Jersey, and York/Lancaster. With over 55 active players and four coaches, PWRFC supports all levels of play and always welcomes new players!


We are based in  Philadelphia with a centrally located practice facility at Kingsessing Recreation Center and all home games are played in Fairmont Park. 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 55 players with various levels of experience. Some have played for many years, while others just joined us this year. PWRFC aims to support all levels of play and aspirations. Email recruitingatpwrfc [dot] org to join us today!
