We hold weekly training sessions throughout the autumn and spring terms, including open nets sessions, indoor games and skills based exercise. Following this, in the summer term, we compete weekly against the other colleges at the university in a 20/20 competition. This proves both an enjoyable and social atmosphere for all involved.

Rugby

Vanbrugh Rugby prides itself on both sporting achievement and our inclusive social environment. We are committed to bringing together rugby players of all experience levels, offering everyone in the college a chance to compete to a high standard. During the matches and training sessions we will be fully focused on improving as a team and winning games. However a large part of the appeal of Vanbrugh rugby is undoubtedly the social side, led by our dedicated social secretaries and giving us a reputation within the college as the best social team. Whether you are looking to be involved in a competitive rugby competition or simply to advance your university social life, then I thoroughly recommend that you try Vanbrugh rugby; it was the best choice I ever made.
