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

The end of the third paragraph!

It's addressed to Gessner. The date must be a typo. It should read 1883.

The newsletters were excellent read. Received them for a few years after leaving the D.C area and living the next duty station! Ski 🏉

Fortunately we are a far more open minded club these days and have worked with an excellent Gay Mens Rugby Club and supported a women's shelter in the region...among other charities reflecting our belief in treating everyone off the rugby pitch with respect. On the rugby pitch is another story.
