FAQ

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    I've never played rugby, can I still get involved?

    Yes. We welcome players of all ages and abilities.

    If you are interested in learning how to play full contact Rugby then we have a team who practice twice per week and play regular matches in the local Swiss league.

    We have an active non-contact tag rugby section for those players who want to try tag rugby and have some fun in a friendly, social environment.

    Even if you don’t want to play the Club is always looking for volunteers to help organise events, administration and assist with training sessions. Please contact a member of the Committee to find out how you can contribute to the success of our rugby club.

    Is there a women's section?

    No. There is no dedicated women’s section yet. Ladies are welcome to join the non-contact tag rugby sessions on a Tuesday night at Grand Pre, Blonay.

    My child doesn't have a licence, can he still play in the tournaments?

    No. A junior rugby licence is required to play in tournaments in Switzerland. Our Junior membership fees include the costs of the annual Swiss rugby licence.
