Women's Rugby

Welcome! We are an all woman squad who play and train contact rugby every Wednesday at 7pm on a rotational basis between Aldeburgh, Ipswich and Felixstowe.The training sessions mainly consist of fitness and technique. If you would like to find out more please use the contact form below. 

The Aldeburgh Women are part of a Contact Rugby Team called the East Suffolk Saxons.

The East Suffolk Saxons are a "Barbarians" rugby team created by the Eastern Counties Rugby Union. The ECRU spotted that there were women's rugby players without the numbers for their individual teams so suggested that players from Aldeburgh, Ipswich and Felixstowe rugby clubs join ranks. And so 'The Saxons' were formed and are a new entry into the Inner Warrior Series - ECRU Merit League. These 20+ players first trained together on 21st August. They rotate their Wednesday evening training sessions between the three clubs to make it fair on the travelling players. Coaches from all 3 clubs get involved with training, Paul Atherton from Aldeburgh Rugby Club, Peter Sheppard from Felixstowe Rugby Union Football Club and more recently Chris Kolapo-Ajala from Ipswich Rugby Football Club.
