    The club is one of the longest running clubs at UEL. Our club offers men and women the opportunity to play, from beginners to advanced players. We play 15-sided and 7-sided competitive games.

    The rugby club currently has one men’s and one women’s team that compete in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Leagues & Cup, and we play every Wednesday afternoon.


    Our club trains every Monday from 7pm to 9pm at the East London Rugby Club.


    We provide a number of additional playing opportunities for our members, in addition to the 7’s tournaments we play in both student RFU friendly leagues and compete in EMC Cup in Normandy, France with Greenwich University.

    Joining the rugby club was the best
    decision I have made. It helped me to
    become more social and to improve as a
    rugby player. I was selected for the County Rugby Squad and represented UEL in a tournament in France, all due to my
    involvement with the club.
