So following the Rio Olympics, everybody may have just fallen in love a little bit with rugby thanks to the rugby 7s. Find out about rugby in LA right here.
Ok so they may not be playing on the same scale as the Emirates Rugby 7s Tournament, or the Six Nations, but LA does boast its very own rugby team! With Mens, Seniors, Youth and Touch Rugby all comprising the club, this incredible and fast-paced sport is slowly growing and gaining popularity in the US. Although currently lacking a Womens team, one can only hope that it is on the near horizon.
If you’re thinking that the Los Angeles Rugby Club is a really recent invention, then think again. This club was actually founded way back in 1958, meaning it really is a well-established club, with strong training practices. With various tournaments throughout the year, the next one coming up is a fun beach rugby tournament, so head along to that if you want to see this amazing sport live.
The club has its own home-field at Dodson Middle School on Montereina Drive and also tours a lot for 7s and club rugby. If it’s really the Rugby 7s that you want to watch, then their season runs from June to August usually, but you are just in time to watch the regular season rugby!
So take a look at their website here and support your local rugby team – who knows, you may just fall in love with it!
