About Women’s Rugby Union
The University of Women’s Rugby Union Team (ULWRC) is a united team of women, who share a passion for fitness and sportsmanship. Not only this, ULWRC bring different people together from a variety of backgrounds to create new friendships that can really enhance and make your time at the University of Lincoln much more memorable. Joining a sport of any kind, is a way of making the most of your time here at university. We believe that by joining ULWRC, you will be improving your skills of rugby, you will be giving yourself time away from your studies to relieve some stress and have some fun, and also you will be interacting with new people and making some true friends for life!
At ULWRC, we accept members of all ability. Many of our girls have never played before, and some have played lots! We start from scratch with any newbies, so any daunting thoughts about playing rugby will become much less intimidating when you sign up with us. If you want to give a new sport a try, or continue your passion for rugby, then ULWRC is the club for you!
We have one team in BUCS, and our team is very open each year to new players. We train people in several positions so you can see where you like to play the most, and also where our captain thinks you play the best for the team! We are very committed to our training sessions, and the more you put in to ULWRC, the more you get back. We train on Monday 7-9pm and Tuesday 6-7pm. Both sessions involve fitness, however Monday we train at Lincoln Rugby Club, so this is where we focus our time on contact training and putting skills we need for game situations to the test. Tuesday is about preparing ourselves with run throughs with that week’s squad for the BUCS game on a Wednesday.
Then it’s time for QUACK! Quack is where we hold our socials every Wednesday, and we encourage all members to join to get the most out of ULWRC. We don’t offer a social membership, however, you are welcome to play as much or as little as you like. How you utilise your membership is entirely down to you!
Come and join ULWRC, and make your journey at the University of Lincoln amazing!
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
