As well as a high-performing first team, Antlers is very proud of its Development Squad.
Whether you have never touched a rugby ball before or you are looking to return to the sport, the Development Squad gives women of all abilities and fitness levels the opportunity to train and play in a fun, stress-free environment.
The Development Squad is now entering its third season and is going from strength to strength. The team is made up of those new to the sport, returning after not having played for a time and those coming back from injury. The team trains with the first team and plays its own fixtures against other local development teams in organised friendlies and local tournaments in which we have a successful track record.
Behind this success is the uniquely supportive and welcoming culture of the club. We believe that there is a place for everyone on a rugby field and the team includes women who had never picked up a rugby ball, with some taking it further and making the move into the first XV. We believe that playing with fun, like-minded beginners makes all the difference.
We are passionate about rugby as a way of getting fit, growing confidence, having fun and making friends and we are delighted that so many women have taken their first steps onto (or back onto) a rugby field with us.
