Harlequins Help Spruce Up Atlanta! 
The Harlequins spent a balmy day in January at North Druid Hills Preschool with Trees Atlanta! This group works to protect Atlanta's forests and create new green space. Quins spent the morning putting their muscles to good use digging holes and planting new trees to support the cause! 
Spring Alumni Match 

D2 will take on Charleston in our only home game of the spring season at Old White' s field (1035 Fairburn Rd SW, Atlanta, GA).  Tentative kickoff is at 3:00pm, but please come early to watch the other youth and men's games during the day.  Rumor has it that there will also be head shaving in honor of St. Baldrick's.  Let us know If you want to participate!  There will be an alumni reception tent for all former Quins with merchandise and activities.  Please visit our website in the next weeks for more exact details about the day's agenda as times are subject to change!

Help us fundraise this Spring!
We are always working on ways to sustainably fundraise for the club so we can continue to grow! There are a couple different (easy!) ways that you can support the Quins:
  • Use Amazon Smile whenever you're getting your online shopping done. You can set your account to support "Atlanta Harlequins Womens Rugby Football Club" and the club will get money every time you shop! 
  • Order your protein and other workout supplements from Ruck Science! By using the code "ATLANTAHARLEQUINS" when checking out, a portion of your purchase will be donated to the team
  • Order some Harlequins gear. We are in the process of building our brand new online store! Any items that you want but we don't have? Let us know here what you would like to see in our new store!

My favorite rugby memory is the first time I went to a rugby tournament and got to play an impromptu game with players from all different teams. 
What does being a Harlequin mean to you? It means more people decided to put up with me... but it also means I get to be a part of a bigger rugby family!
