Villanova Rugby is designated as a club sport under the Villanova University Athletic Department and is thus open to any male Villanova student who meets the USA Rugby and Villanova requirements for participation.
New in the fall of 2015, Villanova competes in the Keystone Rugby Conference. Before the 2015 season, the club was a member of the Mid Atlantic Rugby Conference for Fall 15s. The spring season consists of both 7s and 15s matches in the Philadelphia area and all over the East Coast. There are also numerous 7s tournaments throughout the summer which the club participates.
