The Washington Women’s Rugby Football Club, better known as the DC Furies, is one of the oldest women’s rugby clubs in the nation. The Furies participate in the Women’s Premier League, the highest level of women’s rugby competition in the country, placing 7th in 2009 and 2011 and 6th in 2010. The team is comprised of a mix of elite, developmental, and beginner athletes. A number of Furies players are currently members of the 15s and 7s Women’s National Team selection pools, the Mid-Atlantic Rugby Football Union (MARFU) senior select-side 15s and 7s teams, and the MARFU Under-23 select-side team.
The Furies play Spring, Summer, and Fall, with skills work throughout the Winter. Practices take place in the Washington, D.C. metro area, and 15s matches are scheduled throughout the United States in both the spring and the fall and 7s tournaments throughout the Summer.
The Furies are a 501(c)(3) organization with the goal of providing competive and social rugby for women in the DC Metropolitan area. Donations to the team are tax deductible as allowed by law.
