Women’s rugby in Christchurch and New Zealand continues to go from strength to strength. Our teams dominate at the international level and our national competitions provide the perfect framework in which talent can grow and develop. The foundation is built here at Old Boys.

At a Christchurch club rugby level, woman’s rugby provides a range of options for the newcomer – from the relaxed nature of social divisions to the highly competitive senior levels.

We believe firmly that rugby is a sport that unites. It fits all body types and skill levels. It can be played for simple enjoyment or intense challenge. It is enjoyable to watch, play, coach and referee. That’s why we accept all fitness levels here – you turn up with the right attitude and we’ll provide the supportive team atmosphere in which to turn that attitude into action.

Back when the Old Boys club was formed the idea of a women’s team may have seemed incredible. Needless to say, we’re very happy that times have changed. As more and more New Zealand women take up rugby our player numbers have increased. We now look forward to growing our teams further still – and to our players continued success at a local, national and international level.
