Welcome to the home of

Newcastle Ravens RFC

The North East's only inclusive rugby team


Bootcamp

Beginners Bootcamp

Every year the Newcastle Ravens host a bootcamp to get new recruits up to speed on the game and the rules.

We’ve had to hold it a little bit later than usual this year (thanks Covid!) but we’re really excited to hold our first session on the 23rd September.

Inclusive Rugby

We want everyone to enjoy the sport and create opportunities to play regardless of sexuality, gender or background


"I joined the Ravens in 2015 and have been Chairman since May 2020. The club's mission is to provide a supportive and safe space to anyone who wants to play rugby with us. Off the pitch there is a great social scene which we welcome friends and family of the club to be involved in. We are proud members of IGR (International Gay Rugby) and take competing seriously - but not too seriously. If you haven't joined us already then do get in touch."
