As well as a high-performing first team, Antlers aim to have a functioning development squad of players every year, playing in a handful of friendly games and local Cup competitions.
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 team is made up of those new to the sport, returning after not having played for a time and those coming back from injury and everyone trains together.
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.
