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!
