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

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 has just been promoted to compete in the Red River Conference Division 1 for the 2018/2019 season! In addition, we will continue to compete in RRRC's Divisions 2 and 4 as per our previous season 2017/2018.

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!

ChorusHome is taking its first steps towards creating a vertically integrated company with the sole purpose of reducing the world's plastic problems.

Together with our partners we intend to have a significant impact on disposable plastics both on land and in our oceans.

This will take on many different approaches but it begins with an additive when combined with most plastics increases the biodegradation process from the theoretical accepted 1000 years expected reduction of plastic back to its natural base form. The addition of the additive to the Chorus products facilitates the breakdown of the end plastic product to be reduced down to days and months, whilst at the same time is the only additive that can be added to plastic and still be recyclable. The Chorus development team are always investigating the technological advances in environmentally friendly biodegradable base materials and have recently entered into environmentally biodegradable paper which can occur as quickly as 90 days.

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.
