Letter from the President
Friends, family, and fellow ruggers:
Here at the Worcester Rugby club, we’re wrapping up quite a busy spring season. After going through a
strong team training program in the winter, we kicked off our season on tour in Pittsburgh, where we
defeated the South Pittsburgh Hooligans 45-43 and explored all that the city had to offer. Since then,
we’ve battled against the top competition in Division 2, which set us up for a strong showing at the
annual NERFU Cup in Newport. Our spring concludes with a unique match – Wales-based club Tondu
RFC will be stopping by Worcester while they’re touring New England for an exciting international
With spring coming to a close, we’re gearing up for an eventful summer, during which we’ll participate
in the NERFU Summer Sevens Series. On Saturdays from mid-June to mid-July, rugby clubs throughout
New England will be sending men’s and women’s teams to full-day tournaments to play the fast-paced
sport of Rugby Sevens, including the Worcester Sevens Tournament that we’ll be hosting on July 13 th at
Foley Stadium. We at Worcester traditionally submit both “competitive” and “social” teams to every
tournament, so that there is plenty of rugby to be played for all.
As such, we’re inviting all men and women who are interested in playing rugby to join us this summer as
we take on the NERFU Summer Sevens Series! Whether you’re a new high school grad fresh off your
last sport season, a college kid who is home for the summer, or a young adult looking for a new activity,
we’re happy to accept any and all who are willing to give this great sport a shot.
Additionally, we’ll be participating in several other events throughout the summer, such as attending
the Can-Am, Acton 10s, and Mad River rugby tournaments; running weekly “touch” sessions; hosting
various social gatherings, BBQs, and a cornhole tournament; and much more! Check out our CALENDAR
for a complete listing of our upcoming events.
