Abbey Ladies, otherwise know as Abbey Nuns, formed in 2013 after growing demand for another women’s rugby team in Berkshire. After an inaugural season of friendlies, the Nuns entered National Challenge South East West 2 and won the league in their first season. Two successive league titles followed in the 2016/17 and 2017/18 seasons, which has now seen the Nuns promoted to Championship South 1, the highest of any Berkshire team in history.
The 2018/19 season will also see the exciting debut of the Nuns 2nd team into National Challenge South East West 3, allowing us to cater for all abilities of player from complete novices to those with international acclaim.

Abbey Nuns train as one squad under head coach Jack Reynolds and Assistant coach Lewis Jones, with guest coaches regularly invited in to share coaching. All training and matches take place at Abbey RFC in Emmer Green, Reading and the team are sponsored by Towergate Insurance, Bourne Builders, The Gateway Irish Bar and Peter Reynolds Properties Limited.
