Men's Rugby

The Men's Rugby Club is one of the most competitive and successful at Princeton. Winning the university's "2017 Sport Club of the Year" award, the club has a membership of over 50 students. We field two to three teams every weekend, and everybody plays. We compete against all the Ivy schools as well as other top colleges in our area.  In recent years we have been to the USA Rugby “Sweet 16’ twice, won the Ivy League as well as 9 New Jersey State Championships.  We regularly spend a week over the winter mid-term break on a foreign tour. In the past 10 years, Princeton has been to South Africa, Ireland, Argentina, Cayman, Trinidad, Barbados and Bermuda.  We have two highly experienced top-level coaches and also benefit from a strong, supportive alumni organization.


We welcome all serious athletes who are looking to play a team- oriented physical sport.  Rugby combines many aspects of football, soccer, and basketball. Most importantly no experience is needed.  We have a fall and spring season and welcome new players throughout the year. Come out and give rugby a try. If you do, we know many of you will grow to love the sport and find a welcome home at Princeton as members of the university rugby club.
