Players

Eno Rugby welcomes all adults over age 18 who feel that a women’s team is the appropriate place for them to play rugby. No prior experience necessary- we only ask that players show up, try their best, and contribute a positive attitude to our fun and supportive family of ruggers!

Practice

We practice at Campus Hills Park on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-9pm. Home match locations vary based on availability, but are generally played in our home city of Durham.

Fall 2021 early-season practices will be geared towards skill development and preparing players for a safe return to rugby following the long hiatus of the pandemic. Prospective players are welcome to come out to any practice to get a feel for the team and the sport before joining. If you plan to play with us on a regular basis, you will need cleats and a mouth guard.

Match Play

Matrix and friendly matches are generally played on various Saturdays throughout the season. During our regular fall and spring seasons, we play 15’s rugby as part of the Carolinas Geographic Union in Women’s Division II.
