ATL Places 7th at USA Club 7s Nationals!

A huge congratulations goes out to the Quins players who placed 7th at USA Rugby Club 7s Nationals in New York this month.
ATL fought hard to make their way out of their pool on Saturday and into the top 8 for Sunday play. After two tough losses to start the day, the Quins came back and beat Rocky Mountain Magic to finish 7th overall! On top of a great team performance, our own Chi Chi Chukwueke earned a spot on the 2018 Women's Dream Team!
WPL Season is In Full Swing
WPL has shown up and showed out with huge numbers this season! The first match of the season ended in a tough 17-15 loss to Beantown. After a great week of practice, WPL faced NYRC at home. In a scoring rally, NY came away with the win, 50-38.
WPL is ready to bring it next week to the Twin Cities Amazons! The game starts this Saturday at 6:00pm at Life University--follow our event for updates.

D2 Rugby is Here!
The Quins D2 side has started up practices! After an awesome kick-off meeting, the Deuces are out training on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00-10:00pm. Watch out for their first game on September 15th at Augusta!
Save the Date for Alumni Weekend
Harlequins Alumni Weekend is September 21-23rd! We will kick off the weekend with a social at Tucker Brewing Company - RSVP here. On Saturday, WPL will take on Beantown at 6:00pm at Life, complete with activities for kids and a social for alums! We will have a Sunday send off, with details soon to come.
WPL Nationals

WPL Nationals is Oct 26-28th at Life University! The club is looking for sponsors for an alcohol tent, photo booth, training services, and party food. Sponsors will receive recognition on the team website and at the event, as well as during the live stream on FloRugby. If you have ideas or connections, please reach out here.
We are planning lots of fun activities, including Saturday, so block your calendars for the weekend. We will be celebrating the 10th season of the Women's Premier League!
