Even though rugby has always been more of a men’s sport, the number of playing ladies is increasing. Therefore, The Elephants consists of a men’s and women’s team.
For newcomers, every start of the academic year a special Young Dogs/Puppy course is organized. If you want to join at another time of the year, please contact the board of The Elephants!
This team plays in the 3th class in the south of the Netherlands and consists of only Elephants. Each season, 15-20 games are played. Therefore, there will be enough room for each individual to shine on the pitch.
Tuesdays from 20.30 hrs at the Vijfkamplaan 31
Thursdays from 20.30 hrs at the Vijfkamplaan 31
The women of Rugby Club Eindhoven and Student Rugbyclub The Elephants form one team together: The Lions. We train twice a week and play a match on Sundays. We are a relatively young team with most players between 17 and 30 years old.
We play in this arrangement for four years now. This season 2020/2021 we will play in the ‘eerste klasse’, where we will play approximately 16 matches. On Tuesday- and Thursday evenings, we train with the whole team, where our trainer Swan and various guest trainers help us to improve our rugbyskills, condition, strength and cooperation as a team.
Not only on the field we form a strong force, but also off the field. After training or games we are often found in the clubhouse. Different committees are active to organise a yearly trip abroad, game nights and drinks. After the regular season of playing matches, we show our (beach)rugby and party skills on different tournaments.
