The Rugby

Abu Dhabi Harlequins are the cities biggest and most successful rugby club. For our Seniors, we boast three Men's teams, two Women's teams, a Veteran's team (for age 35 plus). Our Junior section covers all ages for boys and girls, from Under 4 up to Under 19. Our Under 4 up to Under 8 play a form of Tag rugby (Quick Rip), and from Under 9 upwards for boys followed by contact rugby. The girls carry on in Under 12 Girls playing Quick Rip, Under 15 Girls currently still play Touch Rugby (FIT Rules) and Under 18G play contact.

The Senior Men compete across three leagues from the UAE Premiership to the Community League which, although it may be seen as the social side of the club, is still a highly competitive league. Our Senior Women compete in a number of tournaments with teams from Dubai, Muscat and other Emirates. 

The club has current and ex-International players in both the Senior and Junior teams. Recently a number of our 1st XV players represented the UAE in their triumph in the Singapore 7's.

We are a family driven club. Our coaches and behind the scenes helpers are all parents and volunteers who bring experience and dedication that makes our club run like any professional club, from our in depth and player specific pre-season program to our historical involvement in the Dubai 7's, where as a club we have picked up many trophies but more importantly memories.

So if you are new to Abu Dhabi or you have been here a number of years our club is waiting to help you get back into rugby, get your little ones started or put your knowledge and skills to use as a coach.
