Welcome to West Potomac Rugby!

Founded in 1963, West Pot is one of the oldest active rugby clubs in the Washington, D.C region with a focus on Alexandria and Arlington. We attract many players with and without rugby playing experience who enjoy the club’s close-knit social fellowship and enthusiastic level of play. We are well known for our willingness to train new ruggers from scratch and field a Division III men’s side and a Summer 7’s team as well as an Old Boys (35 and older) side.

"Strength on the field. Courage in the scrum. Determination in the face of adversity. Peace among brothers. Sincerity in word and deed. Loyalty to the club. Beer! Perseverance in getting beer."
-Excedi Universum

West Potomac Rugby with Ryan Bravo Hopkins and Tracy Denholm.

West Potomac Rugby played an excellent game against the Baltimore Chesapeake RFC this past Saturday, losing 22-19. Slippery conditions led to a lot of dropped passes, but the West Pot pack played their best game of the year - dominating the scrum all afternoon, including a penalty try earned after driving the scrum into the tryzone from the 5m line.

This week, West Pot's Man of the Match jacket was earned by lock Tracy Denholm, and West Pot Player of the week went to flank Ryan Hopkins. Well earned, gents!

This weekend​ West Potomac RFC travels on an international goodwill mission, exporting much-needed bravado and freedom to our neighbors to the north, as the club takes part in the Monty Head Tournament of Champions in Toronto, Canada.
