Välkomna till Uppsala RFC - 50 år!
Uppsala RFC är en av Sveriges äldsta rugbyklubbar, grundad redan 1965 och alltså 50 år i år! Idag är Uppsala RFC en förening med knappt hundra medlemmar. Klubbens damlaget har spelat SM-final 2005, 2007, 2009 och 2011, där de tagit hem fyra silvermedaljer. Klubbens herrlag spelar i division 1. Vi har också en hel juniorsektion som bara blir bättre och bättre!
Ladies team season plan 2015
The ladies team has just finished a 2 year long cooperation with Enköping (ERK) and is now aiming for an Uppsala team again.
The recruitment campain has been more succesful than in previous years and we have high hopes for a blue and white ladies team this year, with a little help from some of the girls from ERK.
Jennie Olsson is our new coach this year. With support from Katarina Boman and Guy Dinwoodie, she has been providing experience and commited coaching. During the preseason the ladies are comitting hard to the club's fitness coach Jorge Campos along with classic rugby trainings.
Uppsala will play both 15s and 7s this year. The season will also have some weekend gatherings of regional clubs to play 10s, which is a great opportunity for rookies to play games with less pressure and more support.
The first game of the season will be at home in the beginning of May.
We hope 2015 will be a year for Uppsala ladies to grow, develop and reconquer our rank in Swedish rugby.
Trelleborg preseason tour 2015
On the weekend of the 10th of April, the ladies and men of Uppsala Rugby Club went on a long-awaited tour down to Trelleborg.
The ladies opened the rugby afternoon on Saturday, in an 11-a-side match, set in 4x10 minutes (31-26 to Pingvin, full match report).
The men's team then followed and played 4 quarters of 20 minutes (22-0 to Pingvin, full match report) .
Once the final whistle was blown, we were invited to the Pingvin club house to share food and drinks, as well as friendly competitions between our two clubs, all but one won by Uppsala. The festivities went on throughout the night as people scattered to explore the town.
On Sunday morning, it's a very tired but satisfied group that got back on that bus to hit the road back to Uppsala.
We would like to thank the Pingvin Rugby Club for a great day of rugby and for being fantastic hosts throughout our stay.
Kudos as well to our bus driver Bengt for driving us back and forth safely and for being so accommodating, and who went as far as refusing payment for his services.
Finally, we would like to thank everybody who made this tour possible, by organizing it or taking part of it. It will be remembered for a long time.
