The 2023 UT Old Boys Weekend will be held August 25-26 and will feature all of the familiar events of the past plus a few new surprises. Make plans to return to Knoxville to celebrate another great year of rugby at the University of Tennessee.
The cost to attend the weekend is $100. That includes the Friday reception, Saturday match and meal, and of course a fine selection of swag to help you commemorate the event.

The Volunteer Rugby Foundation began the 2023 Phonathon this week with VRF Board Members partnering with UT Rugby undergraduates to reach out to UT Rugby alumni. The students are sharing news of the current team and recent accomplishments while the board member is outlining the support that VRF provides to Tennessee Rugby.
The VRF Phone-a-thon has a goal of $30,000 in pledges to support Men’s Rugby at the University of Tennessee.
