Join Booth Rugby Football Club!

The Chicago Booth Rugby Club is a community of men and women that seeks two goals:

  • To field a competitive rugby team and
  • to build camaraderie amongst the team and its competitors. 
Outside of on-field play, the team participates in a number of social events. Additionally, the team seeks to support an extensive network of rugby alumni throughout the country, as well as building relationships with the individual competitors we face around Chicago.

No previous experience nor minimum conditioning is required – everyone at Booth, their partners, and those across the University of Chicago grad system is welcome to join us, and there is no pressure for full commitment. You can lead the team into battle on the field or just attend practices and social events, we're happy to have you either way.

Practice Schedule
