Beantown RFC

History of Beantown

Beantown Rugby Football Club was founded in the fall of 1976 and quickly established itself as one of the nation’s preeminent women’s rugby teams. That reputation endures today in a sport that continues to grow in popularity among women, both at the college and club levels.

Beantown coaches and players come from around the country and from all walks of life — we are teachers, doctors, and lawyers; we work in computers, finance, and publishing; we are trade workers, graduate students, and aspiring artists. What we share in common is an abiding love and respect for rugby. It is this love and respect that drive our relentless pursuit of excellence in the gym and on the field, in-season and off-season, as teammates and as friends.
