Who Can Become a Hog?
The Wharton Rugby Football Club (WRFC) is looking for guys interested in fitness, competition, and camaraderie! Come out to learn the game, compete with local clubs / university teams, and have a great time with fellow students. The season runs from September through April – players can join at any time and the team is flexible with individual conflicts. We are a strong, competitive, and fun group.
The WRFC draws its players from all the graduate schools of the University of Pennsylvania, although the majority of members are students at the Wharton School. We welcome players of all skill levels and experience. Practices and games are extremely competitive, but we have traditionally fielded two teams for major tournaments and tours so virtually all members have the opportunity to travel and play against regional, national, and international competition.
