Toronto Muddy York is a progressive, ALL-INCLUSIVE rugby club in the Greater Toronto Area providing the sport of rugby to the gay community and their friends. Established in 2003, we primarily compete against teams in the Toronto Rugby Union. We also travel for exhibition matches against other teams, and host our annual Beaver Bowl Tournament, when we invite other IGRAB (International Gay Rugby Association and Board) and regional clubs to join us in Toronto over the abour Day weekend.

Our name – Toronto Muddy York – is a tribute to the original name of our hometown. Our team colours – blue and yellow – come from both the City of Toronto’s coat of arms, and the Rugby School in Warwickshire, where the game was created in 1823. Blue symbolizes tradition, loyalty, unity and strength; while yellow symbolizes success, athletic achievements and joy.

We welcome members of all skill levels, from absolute novice to seasoned player. Participants benefit from a rewarding game that is not only physically challenging, but also fosters a profound sense of camaraderie both on and off the pitch. Why not join us at our next practice to see for yourself? Check our Calendar of Events or email vicepresident@muddyyork.ca to learn more.
