Univ of Wisconsin - Madison (W)
The Women’s Rugby Football Club at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UWWRFC) is a Division 1 Women's Club Sport, competing in the Midwest Women's Conference. The team plays a competitive fall season against various colleges in the Midwest and a spring season that involves attending tournaments across the country.
In 1975, women of the Madison area formed what would later become the Women's Rugby Football Club at UW-Madison, and the Wisconsin Women's Rugby Football Club of the City of Madison. The team started as a mix of college students and city players who loved the sport. The team was wildly successful, fielding Midwest and USA all-star players, and a number of USA Eagles who played in World Cup games. In 1998, the team officially split into the Wisconsin Women's Rugby Football Club (WWRFC) and the Women's Rugby Football Club at UW-Madison.

They emphasize "NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY." New players are always welcome. Rugby at UW-Madison is a fun, fast-paced game that anyone can enjoy.
All team practices and home games are held at University Bay Field on the UW campus. This field is located on the west side of the UW-Madison behind the UW Hospital.
