Women in Rugby League

Women are central to the overall success of Rugby League.

The sport is played by girls and women at a number of levels from the Champion Schools competition, to colleges and universities and representative Rugby League - and of course in local clubs and regional leagues. Try Tag Rugby League and Play Touch Rugby League also offer mixed and women-only sessions and teams.

Female fans and volunteers contribute significantly to the success of the sport.

Around 40% of Rugby League spectators are female - one of the best ratios in sport - and hugely important to clubs, partners and broadcasters.
