Atomic Sisters home tournament at Balloon Fiesta this Saturday! NM Brujos Fall schedule takes shape.


New Mexico Brujos rugby is taking a little break before their upcoming fall season, but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty of local rugby to come out and support! Our good friends the Albuquerque Atomic Sisters rugby team are playing their only home tournament of the summer this Saturday, July 24th at Balloon Fiesta Park from 9 AM to 3 PM.


Teams competing this weekend include the OP lightning, Phoenix and Tempe. The Rocky mountain magic from Glendale are also coming to play for fun.


After two rounds of SWRU women's summer 7s circuit games the Albuquerque Atomic sisters are currently in first place! This Saturday come on out to Balloon Fiesta to witness the third round in person!


This promises to be a fun filled day featuring some of the premier rugby teams in the southwest that no rugby fan will want to miss!
