Ladies Rugby

Women’s rugby is growing rapidly, and participation is at an all-time high. We are proud to be part of the growth of the sport, and our goal is to continually improve and push ourselves to make Preston Grasshoppers Women the best team to train with and play for in the North West.

Preston Grasshoppers Women were founded in 2002 and has since grown from strength to strength. We are a diverse team which welcomes players off all abilities into women’s senior rugby. We are always open to new members, so whether you’re an experienced player or completely new to the sport please get in touch if you’d like to join us!

Alongside the women’s senior side there is a Hoppers Girls Squad which is also ever growing and further contributing to the growth and development of Women’s rugby. The development of women’s rugby on an international level is astounding and we are so proud to be contributing to this in the North West.

In the 2023/24 season we will be competing in the NC2 North West League.
