Rugby - women


The University of Sussex Women's Rugby team (affectionately known as Sugby) is a flourishing and successful squad with an exciting competitive future. We are always looking for new members to join our squad! This year, with support from two great coaches and a fun, loving and friendly team, we cater for all abilities. So, whether you consider yourself to be a bit of an expert or have no idea how anyone could play a sport with such an odd shaped ball, this team is definitely for you! We aim to please all types of players, whether you want to play for fun, or get really stuck in!

Our 1st team have a promising season ahead and are coming off of a very successful varsity win, our 2nd team had an absolute stormer of a season winning their first, second and third ever games and look forward to the year ahead!



Training: Every Monday and Friday from 5-7 at Falmer Sports Complex (top of the hill)

Matches are held almost every Wednesday afternoon, and we've got 2 fantastic teams!


Socials: The phrase ‘work hard, play hard’ isn’t lost upon us, and the stuff on the pitch definitely isn’t where it stops. Being a super-friendly, social team we have various activities and nights out happening every week through the year, but most of all you will find a large bunch of rugby girls in ridiculous fancy dress outfits heading into town to Oceana (now known as Pryzm, but forvever Oceana in our hearts) every Wednesday WITHOUT FAIL. That’s Sports Feds night and all Sussex sports teams attend, promised to be the highlight of your week! Check out the Social Group (link below) to see more from this side of Sugby!


We take part in and run charity events throughout the year too, which do the community good, as well as serving as great teaming bonding time. Our two charities this year are: Try for Change and Rockinghorse.

So if this sounds like your cup of tea or if you’re not sure but fancy giving it a go, then GET IN CONTACT! If you have any questions, please get hold of us by liking us on Facebook or by messaging any of the committee listed below.
