Join us for High School and Men's Summer 7s

Welcome to the West Houston Lions

The home of Senior, High School and Youth rugby in West Houston

West Houston Rugby Club

We are excited about the future of rugby in Houston and invite you to join the West Houston Lions!

We are a group of highly energized players, coaches, parents and kids with a passion for rugby, and a long track record of developing successful rugby teams. Our aim is to provide an enjoyable rugby experience for all our members.

Through our dedicated coaches and coordinators we develop successful rugby teams from Cubs through to Seniors in the West Houston area. We are now looking to welcome new players and to build on what has been achieved in previous seasons.

The Seniors teams have been playing since 2006. Our Men's First XV side was promoted to compete in the Red River Conference Division 1 beginning in the 2018/2019 season! In addition, we will continue to compete in RRRC's Divisions 2 and 4 as per our previous season 2018/2019.

As a club, we focus on developing all players from Cubs (age 3) through to Seniors. We aim to ensure that the children are learning and having fun, and that the parents feel part of the club too.

Come and join the Pride!

In Texas, the Land of Football, It's Rugby to the Rescue

Texas High School Coaches Association turns to a program born from Rugby to help teach football players the correct tackling techniques to help reduce the amount of injuries and improve the tackling percentage of their teams.

NY Times Article


A Lions Parent Says...

"I knew through marriage to a British rugby player that the sport was much more than playing a game. But until we moved to the Houston area and had our children play, I had no idea what a true family it creates. Many of us are transplants here with no other relatives around, or in many cases even in this country. But I can truly say that the people of West Houston Rugby Club have become family and we are so grateful to be part of this incredible bond across players, parents, coaches, and of course friends". - Liz Phillips, April 2018

Owner Dentist


 Growing up in a medical family, I got to witness the miracles of modern medicine. Dentistry enables me to make my patients smile again and to smile with confidence! It has been my goal to build an office that delivers quality, comprehensive dental care to patients. Seeing my patients smile is the best gift I can hope for.

We have a small office, and we try to understand everyone’s specific needs. My staff and I have created an atmosphere that eases patients’ fear of the dentist, and we truly care about the general health and well-being of each patient we see.
