Valkyries (Ladies) Team


Since its inception in 1998 Ladies rugby at Portsmouth Rugby Club has gone from strength to strength. Last season was hugely successful for the Valkyries as they gained promotion to NC South East West 1 where they are now rubbing shoulder with the likes of London Welsh and Rosslyn Park. With over 40 players within the wider squad we continue to to welcome players of all standards and abilities whether they have played rugby before or not. the Valkyries are not short on ambition, however, and last season a number of our players achieved selection to represent Hampshire County. With a dedicated team of fully qualified coaches the Valkyries train on a Tuesday and Thursday evening from 7pm at Rugby Camp and have fun, progressive and challenging training sessions.

The Valyries are very much a family and work as hard off the pitch as on it and there are always regular social events to give the players oppurtunities to relax away from the rigours of rugby.
