Welcome to the Tynedale Panthers. The Panthers are the girls section of Tynedale RFC and we provide a great social, training and playing environment for girls at Under 13 to Under 18 level at Tynedale Park.
We welcome players of any ability from U12s to U18s and girls younger than that can join the mixed boys and girls development pathway. Girls rugby is booming on the back of increased promotion and support by the RFU, Rugby Sevens in the Rio Olympics and the England victory Womens World Cup. Numbers participating in Northumberland are rising quickly.
For the 2016/17 season we are running squads at U12-U13, U14-U15 and U16-U18 as per the RFU recommendations. Rugby is a very social game suited to players of all abilities. Some of our players simply come down for a bit of excercise and cameraderie - others have aspirations to play at the highest level. We encourage both.
There are three ex Panthers playing at U20 level for England and Scotland. Eight U15 players and three U18s players represent Northumberland and five of the U15s are in the North of England squad.
Tynedale Panthers are coached by Nick Oliver, Jess Richards and Keiran Adams with regular assistance from other coaches at the club.
We train on Thursday evenings during the season (from mid August for pre - Season) 6.15pm – 7.45pm and on weekends when there is no match will hold training sessions on Sunday mornings.
Players can come down and try it for a few weeks and see it's for them before making any commitment.
