Focus on....Thornensians RUFC

Thornensians Girls RUFC are a newly formed rugby team in Doncaster specifically for girls and women aged 11 and over.

Get Doncaster Moving are delighted to have supported Thornensians RUFC with funding to start up the new girls section. The funding has supported the club to deliver a large taster session attracting over 30 girls of all ages where they all had the chance to experience rugby with a Level 2 coach.

The club now have a regular group of girls training and playing competitive matches every week. They have age groups at U18s, U15s and U13s. They plan to expend in the future to have more girls teams and to start a new women's team.

Thornensians Girls stated, "We are fully inclusive and are all about fun! We wholeheartedly believe rugby should offer girls a safe supportive environment to be themselves, build their confidence and have fun. We welcome all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities. Once we are sure that the girls have the skills to safely play a game, we put them on the field. We offer the opportunity to all girls in year 4 upwards to come and have a go! We go at their pace and encourage along the way. We believe in our rugby family and invite you to be part of our club and everything it has to offer".

The girls train Monday and/or Friday night at 6:45pm at Thornensians RUFC.
