Ruggerfest, the DC Furies’ annual women’s rugby tournament, is just around the corner on March 21st and 22nd.

For 34 years the DC Furies’ Ruggerfest has been a premiere all women’s rugby tournament and among the largest competition for women’s teams in the country. Last year’s tournament was the greatest to date and we look forward to making this, our 35th Anniversary Ruggerfest, even better!

There will be four competitive levels of play: Premier, Club Open, College and High School/U19. Once again this year we will be having a closed College Division. The Mid-Atlantic region is home to some of the top women’s college teams and so Ruggerfest offers a great opportunity for college teams to hone their skills. College teams looking for an additional challenge may choose to register in the Club Open division if they so choose. We are also hoping to grow our High School/U19 division this year. The teams that came out last year really showcased how much the game is growing and a lot of incredible young athletes

Registration is now open! So, sign up before February 21, 2015 to pay the lower tournament fees!


We have a new location this year! We will be hosting our 35th Annual Ruggerfest in Bethesda, MD at the Landon School. We’re really excited to be closer into DC and use their incredible facilities!


The DC Furies’ Ruggerfest is also an a great opportunity for area businesses. The tournament draws nearly 1,000 attendees from the DC area and across the country. Players ranging in ages from high school students to seasoned players and retired alumnae come out to show their support.

By supporting the DC Furies during this event, your business will be exposed to players from 20-30 teams plus all attendees of friends, family, and more! In the DC area, the Furies have 65 registered players and hundreds alumnae, creating an even greater local support and additionally providing you a perfect platform to advertise for your business or organization!
