Rugby has a rich tradition at Reed. It is an intense contact sport that has a unique camaraderie that extends beyond one's own team to rugby players worldwide. There aren't many sports where you can try and physically dominate each other for 80 minutes, only to have the hosting team invite you to share a meal right after. One thing that distinguishes Reed rugby is how inclusive it is. We have athletes who have played sports all of their lives as well as people who are just now trying it out. Everyone gets an opportunity to play.

Although most Reed ruggers retire after college, the experiences and friendships are things that stay with them forever. The extensive Reed rugby alumni network that extends from both the men's and women's teams is evidence of the impact this sport has had on those who played it.
