Welcome to Tabard Women. This season we will again be competing in National Challenge South East 1 after winning back to back promotions as Champions.
Women’s Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. With England Women current European champions and the success of the 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup which was held in the UK, this trend is set to continue and we are keen to both encourage new players and bring experienced players back to the game.
Tabard Women began playing friendly games with local sides seven years ago. In 2007 we entered a friendly league and won with an unbeaten record. Following this in 2008 we entered the national leagues and in our second season at this level we won the league as champions and were promoted. We achieved a second promotion the following year and aim to build upon this success in 2012-2013.
We are also supporting the U18 Herts Barbarians, a cluster of local clubs, to give girls the opportunity of playing league rugby while we establish our own U18 team.
We always welcome new players, whether they are experienced or have never picked up a rugby ball before and are keen to hear from anyone who wants a taster training session to see if rugby could be for them. We are a friendly side who socialise regularly and are involved in all areas of the club, so as well as the playing side there is a lot more for new players to become involved in. Tabard is a friendly family orientated club where all players and non-playing members support and encourage all teams from minis to junior and senior men and women.
Training and Coaching
Training is on Wednesday nights from 7.15 to 9pm and players of all abilities are welcome.
This season we are joined by Coaches Spencer Lochhead and Paul Settle to strengthen our existing team. We also have visits from guest coaches throughout the season, previous guest coaches included a visit from England international Margaret Alphonsi.
We have a team physiotherapist available for training and matches, which take place on a Sunday afternoon.
The team has progressed tremendously throughout the past seven seasons and last year we again provided players for the Herts County Women’s squad, and one of our girls was selected and played for the South East Division.
So why not come along on a Wednesday and unlock your potential.
