Rugby - Mens'

First established in 1888, the University of Bristol Rugby Club is a place for everyone. From age grade internationals to Americans learning the game from scratch, and from heavyweight drinkers to more reserved, quiet characters - UBRFC welcomes everyone. With our first and second XV competing in the two highest leagues in British University sport, we compete on a par with the top sporting universities in the country.

We have a club environment that leaves a lasting impression, with Old Boys (some even dating back as far as the 1950s) still keeping in contact and recalling fond memories of UBRFC. We have 5 teams of all kinds of quality, and excellent socials catering to all personalities - so you will be sure to feel at home at our club.

Our reasonable membership fee includes shorts and socks, as well as match fees so that you don't have to worry about paying every week. Our 1st-5th teams all play in BUCS competitions on Wednesdays, with the 5th team being reserved exclusively for Freshers. Combined with the opportunity to play in first-year tournaments with other Southwestern universities on Sundays, there is always the opportunity to play and get to know other members of the club.

It is the biggest and oldest club in the University, but we're always open to doing new things and welcoming new people. So come along and see for yourself, you won't regret it
