UL Ladies Rugby is a very social and fun loving team but we are also very competitive. It is this mix that brings out the best in all our members, and each year new members are crucial to our clubs success. We are a college team and compete in the SSI Division 1 League (Senior team), SSI Division 2 League (Junior Team) and also in the annual Intervarsity tournament, many of our players play for a variety of different clubs at the weekends. Last year was yet again another successful years for UL Ladies Rugby both on and off the field. We had various social activities which helped people to get to know each other and as with every year when new members join, lasting friendships are formed and the craic is mighty!! On the pitch our socialising and other activities seemed to pay off as we made the semi -final of the SSI Division 1 League and for the first year ever came out on top of the SSI Division 2 League beating NUIG and taking the cup back to UL. During the year we hold many social outings. Here are a few words to describe the social side of ULLR – pre-season parties, fresher’s party, bowling, paintballing, come-dine-with-me, shunting, mid-season party, popsicle parties, movie nights, pancake parties, beach trips, Six Nations trips, post-match parties, team breakfasts, team lunches, Kinsale, awards night, bake off’s, team bonding, to name but a few!! We strive to achieve the right balance between on and off the field activities; as a result of this there is great camaraderie between all our team members. Finally we hope that you will come and give ladies rugby a try. Beginners are more than welcome and encouraged to join. Every year a vast proportion of new members have never played before but they learn quickly and love the game and the camaradarie. If you are a more seasoned player come join us also there is a place for everyone on our team. For more information visit the UL Ladies Rugby Facebook page. Membership is 10 euro for insurance reasons and regrettably members cannot play or train until this is paid. Looking forward to meeting all our newbies this year!!!
