Girls Rugby at TRC

Leading the way for Girls Rugby in Singapore

Girls Rugby….

From one player at TRC, in September 2015 , looking to play rugby with the boys’ team to now upwards of 100 girls playing across all age groups from U10 to U18, TRC is leading the way in the growth of girls rugby in Singapore.

TRC is focused on growing the number of girls playing contact by ensuring our players have as many opportunities as possible to play rugby games in Singapore.

At TRC our focus is to offer excellent coaching so the girls can develop a passion for the sport while forming strong bonds on and off the pitch.

Our Girls Rugby teams train and play with commitment and our players have an opportunity to compete in international tours to Hong Kong, Bali, and Cambodia, along with competing in local Singapore tournaments.

In addition, since 2017, TRC has hosted an All Girls Rugby Tournament with teams from Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Australia playing in the one-day tournament. The fourth annual Girls Rugby TRC Cup will be played on Saturday 18th November 2023 with Girls across Asia competing!

TRC runs empowering international community projects where our players have the opportunity to travel and give back to communities less fortunate. We have travelled to Phnom Penh where we took part in an initiative with Kampuchea Ballop, to bring rugby to a community of less fortunate girls. The program uses sports to build self-esteem and discipline and all of the girls that travelled from Singapore also got a lot from the trip.

Tours and Tournaments

Singlife Girls Rugby TRC Cup

On Saturday 7th December 2019 TRC hosted the Singlife Girls Rugby TRC Cup with 450 girls aged 8 to 18 competing at TRC grounds at Turf City.

The Singapore and Hong Kong rugby communities supported teams from Bali, Jakarta, Philippines, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam which made the tournament a truly international festival for girls rugby.

This was the third year of hosting a dedicated girls contact rugby tournament and TRC were delighted that so many teams from across SEA joined us.  Special thanks to the Tanglin rugby community who also hosted many of the overseas teams in their own homes.

Founder and CEO of Singlife, Walter de Oude, added that “Singlife is proud to be supporting the Singlife Girls Rugby TRC Cup for the second year running. Beyond being just a sports event, the TRC Cup is unifying athletes from around the world with the love of rugby, creating an occasion to celebrate teamwork, sportsmanship and gender equality – values that Singlife embraces.”

The tournament had the following teams competing: Tanglin Rugby Club, Valkyries, Singapore Cricket Club, Centaurs, Titans, Aonyxs, Hong Kong Football Club, Valley Fort, Sandy Bay, Sai Kung Stingrays, Flying Kukris, Kampuchea Balopp (Cambodia), Lao Rugby Federation, Davao Durians (Philippines), Jakarta Dragons, Dewi Thunders (Bali) and Kim Boi Wildcat Juniors (Vietnam).

Phnom Penh Girls Rugby Tour

Girls teams toured to Phnom Penh in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and 2023 to play against several local teams organised and mentored by Kampuchea Balopp.A wonderful experience for these young players to be involved and see the amazing opportunities Kampuchea Balopp provides for the children in Phnom Penh.

Playing barefoot rugby against 12 local teams they competed for the Cup in a one-day
tournament and had a fantastic time doing so.

The girls will be travelling to Cambodia again in 2024 and we are all very much looking forward to the trip.

TRC Junior Cup, TRC Cup Rugby Tournament, Centaurs Tournament and SCC Rugby 7s

The Girls have participated in the TRC Cup Junior Tournament, the TRC Cup Rugby Tournament, Centaurs Tournament and the SCC Rugby 7s Tournament since 2017. All tournaments had our players playing against the boys’ teams and doing so competitively.

In 2023 TRC Girls only teams will enter both the TRC Junior Cup and Rentokil Initial TRC Cup (15 a side) and are expected to give the boys a hell of a match.  They have also entered the mini leagues and will take part in all the usual tournaments in Singapore.

During 2023 TRC, in conjunction with JRCS, have hosted a number of All Girls Friday night games under our floodlights, with girls from all Singapore clubs invited, followed by a pizza evening – lots of fun!
