Fresher’s football future at Royal Holloway
Are you looking to meet new friends and have a great social life at university as well as playing competitive sport week in week out?
Whether you are a Fresher or a returner, RHUL Men’s Football is the place for you. As the biggest sports club on campus, featuring six teams and over 100 members, Men’s Football welcomes players of all levels, whether you are new to the game or have been playing since before you could walk.
With two games and one or two training sessions a week, regular socials, various volunteering opportunities and an end-of-year football tour, Men’s Football promises to make your time at RHUL as good as it can be.
Last season the club knew great successes, with the 1st team winning the LUSL Cup, and the 2nd and 4th teams getting promotions in both BUCS and LUSL leagues. Unfortunately, the 6th team just lost the LUSL Cup Final due to a last minute penalty. This season all teams will be looking to match those successes, so they will be looking for new players during the trials on September 27th and 28th.
For more information, look out for us during Welcome Week and at the Sports’ Fayre down at the Sports Centre.
After a successful development 7s tournament last year, RHUL Women's Rugby are back again with a BIGGER and BETTER event; ‘Rumble in the Jungle' 7s.
Women's Rugby is taking over Windsor RFC on the 8th June to showcase 7s talent from a range of South-East University Women's teams. The day is all about developing the 7s game at University level to give teams the chance to play more 7s whilst the Sun is still shining.
As the name gives away, the tournament is themed so every team takes part as an animal (three guesses on which we will be?) It should make the event a light-hearted, fantastic tournament, similar to the great atmosphere of the London Sevens tournament.
With music provided by Insanity Radio, a BBQ, face-painting, raffles and much MORE, the tournament is set to be a showcase of amazing rugby as well as a fun day out! EVERYONE is welcome to come down.
All proceeds from team entries are being donated to Wooden Spoon, a charity for disadvantaged children.
The best way to end the term is with a ‘Rumble in the Jungle'.
