The rugby community of Madison, Wis., is home to nine competitive rugby teams for men and women - senior, college, and high school - in addition to an energetic youth flag rugby program. One of the few rugby communities in the United States with its own dedicated rugby fields and a growing facility, the teams of Madison United Rugby also call the Wisconsin Rugby Sports Complex our home in Cottage Grove, Wis.
Since our first teams started in 1962, Madison United Rugby has seen a tradition of success built both on and off the pitch. Our teams have won national championships and our community has seen numerous members represent Madison on territorial and national all-star teams, including internationally for the Rugby World Cup.
Rugby is a game played in more than 120 countries. Many of the values of rugby come from its rich history, camaraderie and community involvement with the sport. Rugby is considered to be one of the fastest-growing sports in the U.S. and around the world. This growth will continue as we see Rugby Sevens (seven-a-side) played in the 2016 Rio Olympics in Brazil.
New players are always welcome to the teams of Madison United Rugby, whether you're brand new to the sport or a skilled veteran. Please explore this website to learn more about our teams and why rugby is thriving in Madison, Wis.
