Rugby for women and girls is one of the fastest-growing team sports in the world; whether you’re tall or short, powerful or fast, no matter what age – rugby is a game for you!
We’re committed to making rugby accessible for everyone and a thriving game at school, club and International level will hopefully attract new players, volunteers and supporters among women and girls.
Be bold and try something new. Be active and make healthy choices. Be powerful and discover new skills. Be a team and enjoy the sport with your friends.
Rugby clubs across Scotland have been welcoming new players along to train and play, with friendly and fun #BeTheBestYou taster sessions for women (aged 18 and over) that have never tried rugby before.
The sessions offer something for everyone, you can expect a fun warm-up, stretching, skills and the chance to meet new people.
We look forward to meeting you soon at a club near you!
Women & Girls Game Play Opportunities
Scottish Rugby's Rugby Development department are hosting a number of Game Play Opportunities across the country throughout the 2021/22 season.
The programme offers a player centred environment for clubs wanting to start women or girls rugby activities in their community or the further development and transition of players into 2nd XV’s.
The series provides meaningful and appropriate opportunities for new and developing players to experience the game in a safe, supportive and enjoyable environment, offering flexibility to help overcome barriers to participation and assisting clubs in developing their capacity to support and facilitate women’s rugby.

Playing rugby can give you more than fitness and a new team sport to try; you can develop leadership skills, make new friends, build confidence and surprise yourself with what you can achieve.
If you’re aged between 12 and 17, ask at school or at your local rugby club to see how you can get involved.
Mini rugby introduces children to the foundations of rugby union in a safe and enjoyable way, gradually introducing techniques, skills and confidence as the players grow and develop.
Mini rugby is played by girls and boys up to, and including P7 at primary school, with clubs across Scotland offering coaching and training sessions for young players keen to try something new.
Ask at your child’s school for more information or contact your local club.
