The Portland Women’s Rugby Club was founded in the 1970’s and has a long, strong history of competitive and fun rugby for women and teens in southern Maine. The Portland Women’s Rugby Team competes in Division 2 of the New England Rugby Football Union. We are actively rebuilding post-pandemic and are already showing great numbers at practice as we prepare to compete again in the fall!
We are a Maine nonprofit corporation and a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization. While players’ dues cover most basic expenses, we need donations to help support us as a competitive athletic organization. Our needs include lighted or indoor fields, referees, more field time for outdoor practices and summer, uniform and equipment replacements and additions, coaches training and development, travel expenses (when we get back to that!), etc. Want to help out the team? Head on over to our Venmo account @PWRFC-Rugby. Your donation in support of our team, our club and our sport is greatly appreciated!
