What’s our story?

Since our formation in 2004 we continue to provide a welcoming environment for everyone looking to play rugby in the Netherlands. We are committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment into which players of all levels of experience feel comfortable. Our goal is for everyone to enjoy rugby in a prejudice free environment, and we are proud of our supportive, diverse and social team and to call one of the oldest rugby clubs in the Netherlands in Amstelveen our home. We currently have a men's and women's team. We consider rugby to be for all and welcome everyone to our club. 

When do we have matches and tournaments?

We play in the Dutch competition, organize friendly matches against local and other inclusive teams. We are proud members of the International Gay Rugby Associations whose LGBT+ rugby tournaments the Union Cup and the Bingham Cup take us all around the globe including Sydney, Dublin, Nashville, Madrid and Ottawa. We even had the honor of hosting both biennial tournaments at home in Amsterdam in 2011 and 2018 respectively.

Every Tuesday and Thursday 20.00h at our ARC home base at Sportlaan 25 in Amstelveen. For the Lowlander Ladies please click here
