The Harlequin Family Newsletter: January 2018

Happy New Year!

In an effort to connect with our larger Harlequin family, friends, and alumni this year, the Quins will be sending out a monthly newsletter. We are so excited to share our accomplishments and journey as a club throughout the year!
We are asking for your help as we collect contact information for all of our alumni, fans, and current players. Please take two minutes to fill out our information sheet so we can avoid double emails, mail bouncing back, and YOU missing out on exciting Harlequin news!


Harlequins Split Games at WPL Nationals

The Harlequins traveled to Tuscon, Arizona this November to complete in the 9th annual WPL National Championships. Atlanta lost a hard fought first match to Chicago North Shore, 24-5, and missed out on a spot in the 5th place playoff. The Harlequins ended the weekend on a high note with a great 34-10 win against the D.C. Furies. 

The team laughed, they cried, and in true #DWFA fashion they crushed the social! The Quins are excited to have this platform for growth in the offseason. Thank you to alumni, family, and friends that supported the Fall WPL season and trip to nationals! 


D2 Practice Starts in February

After a great Fall season that ended with a 45-10 win over the Augusta Furies, the D2 squad is kicking off practices in the beginning of February! If you would like to join them, please contact:
