About Nooga Rugby

Chattanooga Rugby Football Club "NoogaRugby" has been around since 1978. This past decade we've been the premier team in the region winning 5 straight division titles from 2013-2017, and we're hosts to the largest social 7s tournament every July called Pitch-a-Tent.

If you're new to rugby or just new to the area, we are excited to meet you! Every Tuesday and Thursday from 7-9pm we practice at Montague Park. New players are showing up constantly, so you won't be the only one who "doesn't know the rules" (<---click this link). Come on out!

Divison 2: Competitive; Experienced; Champions.


Division 3: Newer players; Playoff contenders back-to-back years.

"They welcome anyone to just show up and learn, even if they've never touched a rugby ball"  --- Newbie

"It's a great group of guys who each have their own lives, own ways, and own s#!t wrong with them, and we love it! We accept it and appreciate it, and although we'll call you out for yours, you'll start to own your flaws and grow as a man.......We also party too and that helps the bonding" --- Oldie
