Bristol Ladies

Bristol Ladies is an aspirational club offering players the opportunity to develop and grow within a welcoming environment. Our first team currently play in the Tyrrells Premier 15's, while our development squad are in the Tyrrells Women's A League. 

The club employ a high calibre of coaching staff in Head Coach Kim Oliver and her support staff. The squad boasts a wealth of talent, from Team GB Olympians, International Stars and BUCS champions, through to a development squad of committed individuals from across the South West. 

The first team squad have consistently retained their top flight status alongside some of the best clubs in the country, and made the 2016/17 Premiership final where they were beaten by Aylesford Bulls. 

Players are not only Bristol based, but travel from Exeter, Gloucester, Wales and Swindon to play for Bristol Ladies. The club train and play home fixtures at Cleve RFC.

Bristol Ladies, sponsored by Park One Coffee and Kitchen, Thatchers and Astra Communications, partnered with Bristol Rugby Club in order to develop the women's game in the region. An affiliation with Bristol Rugby has enabled Bristol Ladies to develop high professional standard and promote the sport at a time when popularity and media exposure is increasing. 

Our club is welcoming and supportive, providing opportunities for women of all standards to reach their rugby playing potential through our two teams and our sister club programme.
