What we're about

West Potomac is a men's rugby club in the DC metro area with practice and playing fields in Arlington and Alexandria. We welcome new and experienced players to a club that loves rugby and having fun. We like to drink beer, carry on, and have a habit of not being invited back to fancy establishments. Don't let rugby stereotypes dissuade you. It's not a blood sport and you're not too small to play. We're working professionals and some of us have kids. Matches are generally family and pet friendly and we make sure everyone has a chance to learn and prove themselves on the pitch. There is an Old Boys side as well. Practice is Tuesday and Thursday evening at various fields in the area. We can help with transportation. E-mail westpotrugby@gmail.com for more info. Alexandria, Arlington, Washington D.C.
