The women’s rugby club, in existence since 1988, is always looking for interested players to join the team. No prior experience is necessary to play. In fact, most of our players begin with no knowledge of the game! If you’re interested in playing, please feel free to reach out to the president.

During a non-Covid-19 pandemic year, the Keene State women’s rugby club participates in the NERFU-NSCRO South bracket. Teams looking to schedule games can contact the club’s match secretary Elizabeth Winsor at
