Win An Autographed Jonah Lomu Ball! 

AHWRFC is hosting a raffle over the next month  to support our 7s squad who has earned the South #1 seed to compete at Nationals on August 11 & 12, 2018!

Grand Prize is a ball autographed by rugby star Jonah Lomu from the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, England. Second and Third prizes include a Harlequins swag package and gift cards. You can purchase raffle tickets for $10 each online here
Introducing Odds & Ends with the Quins! 
Odds and Ends with the Quins is our new, year-round fundraising program! Now, when you have a task or odd job that needs to be completed, such as moving, painting, or gardening, you can hire a qualified Harlequin or two to help you out. When you pay, part of fee will go to the club, and the other part will go towards that player's account, which they can use for dues, team flights, and more. Information on how to hire a Harlequin can be found here
Harlequins Hit the Atlanta Foodbank
Thanks to all who came out to volunteer with the Quins at the Atlanta Community Food Bank! During our morning shift, we sorted and packaged over 10,580lbs of product (which will provide 6,725 meals in one week!)!! Keep an eye out for another #servicesaturday in August, followed by a 7s Nationals watch party!
Congratulations to our 7s Teammates! 
 A mixed group of dedicated Harlequins, collegiate, and long-lost 7s players qualified for this year's Club 7s National Tournament! The squad made a statement with placing FIRST at Music City 7s in Nashville without a full practice under their belt. The following weekend they beat a stacked Phoenix team in the finals of the Georgia Games. Read 7s team member and manager Marcel Nelson's take on qualifying here!  

Make sure to support the team by purchasing your raffle tickets, and coming out to the Rugby World Cup watch party on July 22nd! 
WPL Practice Starts July 31st
Our first Harlequins WPL practice will be July 31 at 7:30pm at Life University! We are so excited to see what our new head coach Kittery Wagner Ruiz has in store. 
In addition to our WPL schedule above, the Quins were lucky enough to add a friendly match against Life West on September 8! 
We are always improving - that includes our social media! We are looking for new hashtags (like #TackleTuesday) to show off all that the Quins have to offer - tweet us your best hashtag and you could win a brand new Atlanta Harlequins baseball cap!
