Brooklyn Women's Rugby in Red Hook!

Brooklyn Women’s Rugby was started two years ago by five players, most of them with no previous rugby experience. A regular Rugby team has fifteen players, and after a lot of work recruiting and practicing to become a competitive team in the New York Rugby League they are up to 25 players and are having their first game this season on their home field in Red Hook.

As you can see from the attached photos, we take our rugby seriously, even if we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Rugby is a complex, full contact game, but it is also supremely entertaining to watch and play, even if you may be uncertain about the rules.

The team is very excited to have their first home game next Saturday, May 2nd, at 11:00 am at the Red Hook Park and Recreation Center.

Spread the word and show up for a good time!

As a French citizen myself, I have been missing the excitement of seeing our national XV de France fight it out against the New Zealand All Blacks, among the many impressive and international teams.
