Annual Campaign

Tiger Rugby Football Club

at the University of Memphis


We’re not just any competitive athletic club, we are a beacon for the sport of rugby in the city of Memphis. The members of Tiger Rugby are dedicated students that not only develop themselves individually, but foster up-and-coming middle and high school players to have the opportunity to get involved in the fastest growing sport in the United States.


Our Players deserve the opportunity to discover the true potential for their athletic abilities and talents under the guidance of our dedicated coaches, who place all of their time and effort into developing and improving any and every athlete that comes their way. Without financial burdens, the players can focus on what matters most:  School and Rugby.


The city of Memphis has a growing interest in the sport of rugby. Rugby isn’t just a sport, it’s a community based on the principle of brotherhood. Our club is here to mold that interest into a part of life

and a community. Our coaches, players, and alumni are involved in the development of rugby programs in various middle and high school in the mid-south area. This includes individual player development, team/program development, and starting new programs in schools where the faculty, staff, parents, and students may never have experienced this community.
