Our Club | Oxford University Rugby Football Club

The club consists of four men’s teams and two women’s teams. The men’s teams are the Men’s Blues, Greyhounds (Men’s 2nd XV), Whippets (Men’s 3rd XV) and Men’s U20s. These compete throughout the year, including in the annual Varsity against Cambridge at Twickenham. 

There are two women’s teams: the Women’s Blues and the Panthers. The Blues compete in the BUCS Premiership South League and play the annual Varsity Match at Twickenham Stadium in December. The Panthers play a series of ‘friendlies’ against local and southeastern sides in preparation for their Varsity Match which is played in March as double header with the Men’s U20s Varsity, alternating each year between being played at Iffley Road, Oxford, and Grange Road, Cambridge.

The squads train at play at their home ground in Oxford, Iffley Road, where they have been based since the 1890s.
