Bristol Bears Women
Bristol Bears Women is a top flight women’s rugby club that competes in the Allianz Premier 15s. Our vision is to Inspire Our Community Through Rugby Success and we have ambitions of winning the Premier 15s title.
Bristol Bears Women employ a high calibre of coaching staff, which is led by newly appointed Head Coach, Dave Ward.
The club have developed a close affinity to the men's programme in recent years working closely with Director of Rugby, Pat Lam on a shared club vision and philosophy to align the two clubs. The alignment between the two programmes has been enhanced by Bears Women's move to the High Performance Centre, which will see both the men's, women's and academy programme share best practice from a coaching, medical and athletic performance standpoint.
The squad boasts a wealth of talent ranging from international stars that have represented England and Wales, Olympic and Commonwealth Games representatives, age-range internationals as well as BUCS champions, through to a development squad of talented individuals from across the South West.
Players are not only Bristol based, but travel from Exeter, Gloucester, Wales and Swindon to represent Bristol Bears Women.
Bristol Bears Women also strives to help nurture and develop the wealth of rugby talent across the South West through strong partnerships with the University of Bristol, Richard Huish College, SGS College and Weston College.
