The Mighty Wisconsin Rugby Club was established in 1962. From the onset, the WRC founders invested in the foundation of American rugby. Traveling to college towns and metropolitan areas to form ruby clubs across the Midwest, WRC founders played an instrumental role in the development of rugby in the USA. Coming into the start of a new century, the Wisconsin Rugby Club won its first USA Rugby National Championship in 1998, followed by recent championship runs in 2008 settling at 3rd place, runner up in 2012, National Championship in 2013, and runner up in 2015.

​The WRC continues to strive to be at the top of nation in 15s, and will continue to build a presence in the 7s national circuit.

The Wisconsin Women’s Rugby Football Club is a senior women’s rugby team in Madison, Wisconsin.

Founded in 1975, our team is one of the nation’s oldest women’s rugby teams and plays competitively in the Wisconsin, Midwest and USA Rugby unions. We are a non-profit tax-exempt organization as a member of Madison United Rugby.

We celebrated our 40th Anniversary in 2015 by winning our club’s first-ever USA Rugby National Championship. We followed that up in 2016 with a return trip to the National Final, where we finished as National Runner-Up.

Our team is always looking for new members and new opportunities for growth and continued success. We pride ourselves in providing all players with athletic, social and community benefits.

If you’re looking for a way to stay in shape, meet new friends and learn a new sport or continue playing rugby at a high level, Wisconsin Women’s Rugby is for you. New players are ALWAYS welcome!
