Girls Only Rugby: 


Please note that U11’s age grade is the last mixed gender age group rugby: the following season, if you had / have any girls playing at U11’s, they will have to join a Girls U13’s Age group at U12's. (a dual age band compromising U12 and U13 girls only).


If your club does not have a Girls only U13’s group to provide a pathway for your U11’s girls, you should signpost these players to the nearest centre for Girls age grade rugby


Currently there are centres for girls U13’s, U15’s and U18’s at


  • Basingstoke
  • Ellingham & Ringwood,
  • Havant
  • Trojans
  • Winchester 


Additionally there are


  • U13’s Girls only at New Milton 
  • U13's and U15's at Fawley
  • U13's at Portsmouth (new)
  • U13's at Alton (new) 


There is a Local Rugby Partnership for Girls rugby in operation in Hampshire which is supporting the development of girls only rugby in those clubs. 

For any clubs interested in providing girls only rugby at U13’s at their own club, please contact your RDO, Kieran Spencer  KieranSpencer@RFU.com or Ivan Torpey IvanTorpey@RFU.com
