Beantown is immensely excited to return to the WPL. The team is ready and able to face higher levels of competition and represent the northeast on a larger stage. We could not have taken this step without the enthusiasm and support of our community near and far. Thank you for supporting Beantown RFC. Go Forward, Support!
