Bristol Ladies: The Best In The West

Bristol Ladies is a welcoming club offering aspirational players the opportunity to develop and grow. We currently have two senior teams: one in the Premiership and another in Championship South.

The club have a high calibre of coaching staff and a huge wealth of talent, with a squad that boasts a high percentage of county, divisional and international players at both elite and U20 level.

Bristol Ladies became part of Bristol Rugby Club in order to develop the women's game in the region. An affiliation with Bristol Rugby has enabled us to develop high professional standards and promote the sport at a time when popularity and media exposure is increasing.

Bristol Ladies train and play our home fixtures at The Portway Rugby Development Centre. Since becoming Bristol Ladies, the 1st XV have consistently retained their Premiership place alongside some of the top clubs in the country, creating additional strength and success through the 2nd XV.

Our mission is to be the 'Best in the West'; providing opportunities for women of all standards to reach their rugby playing potential.
