The Slingbacks

Famed as the biggest group of ruck stars in South West London rugby, the Slingbacks are Rosslyn Park’s inclusive, LGBTQ+ friendly women’s team that welcomes, cherishes and nurtures both seasoned rugby pros and complete beginners alike.

Founded in 1997, we are blessed to boast some of the best facilities in the women’s game, including a floodlit 4G pitch, a CrossFit gym and a newly-renovated changing room complex. We tape up and scrum down each Sunday in the fourth tier of women’s rugby, NC South East West 1 (with a name that long it must be good), steered along by our two dedicated coaches Rory Bremner and Becky Piddlesden. Rory has over a decade’s worth of coaching experience in both South Africa and the UK, while Becky is a current Harlequins player, schooling us with all her knowledge and expertise from the highest echelons of the game.

Off the pitch, we offer a banging calendar of monthly socials and annual tours, ensuring that even if you leave the field with a few scrapes, you can hit the clubhouse afterwards and make some memories with a bevy of life-long pals.

Come down and join us at Rosslyn Park every Wednesday, 7-9pm for training – the only person missing from our pack is you!
