Pre-season 2017! Read more here
We are always looking for new players/members to join us. So if you are in Aarhus studying just for a few months or staying permanently, come down and have some fun playing rugby. Foreign players are a huge playing and social part of our club. We have players from such places as Ireland, Australia, Portugal and Greenland amongst many other countries. There is always a lot of social activity at the club. We have been going on a preseason tour for the last few years, and there is always an excuse for a post-match drink.
We have 2 senior teams, the 1st XV won the Danish championship latest in 2013, while the 2nd team, Aarhus Misfits, compete in the 2nd division. We have a girls department, and also have a well functioning youth department.
We have asserted ourselves as one of the biggest, best and well-functioning clubs in Denmark, and we plan to continue this trend by always developing, and looking for new challenges.
We participate in the 6 Danish championship competitions there are every season, and have already won a number of gold, silver and bronze medals for the club. In addition to this the youth department has a yearly rugby tour abroad. Practice is every tuesday and thursday from 17.00 to 18.30 during the season.
In 2006 we became deserved Danish champions in the Super League and also the first official Danish champions in 7’s rugby. We have since won the Superleague in ’94 ’08, ’11, ’12 & 13, and the Danish 7s championship in 2007, 08′, 12′ and 14′.
At national level ARK are very well represented with players playing for the under-17/18, 7’s and senior national team.
Aarhus Rugby Club does also have a women’s team. We play 7s rugby and have room for all, even if you are only looking for the fitness part of rugby. Contact our head of the team, Lucy Davies here and our coach Niels here.
