The Dubai Warriors rugby club and academy was established in Dubai in the summer of 2013 to promote the growth and participation of junior Rugby in Dubai.
Since then the club has gone from strength to strength, offering rugby at every age group possible with U5-U8 Tag Rugby, U9-U19 Boys Contact Rugby, Girls U12 and U15 Rippa Rugby, and Girls U19 Contact Rugby. For 2019/2020 we are also increasing our reach in to the community with Adult Touch on offer to male and female players aged U16 years and beyond, with no experience required.
Warriors’ home ground is Dubai English Speaking College, giving players the benefit of exceptionally well-maintained grass pitches and new floodlights for evening sessions. With friendly staff offering food and drink at each session, we are thrilled to call this place home.
As a not-for-profit, volunteer-led organisation, the club is incredibly proud of the community ethos it has built, thanks to the dedication of its volunteer coaches, young players and Warriors families. Led by George Cliffe, Director of Rugby and Darren Burke, Chairman, Dubai Warriors aims to give every child the opportunity to play rugby in a safe, supportive environment, and to instil the values of the rugby club to our entire Warriors community – honour, loyalty and courage.
