The first Alumni Game was introduced in the spring of 1982 and has been held annually with few exceptions. More than 800 graduates are Babson Rugby Alumni, many of whom continue their involvement with the college and the clubs.
Alumni Games are coordinated with both Men’s and Women’s Clubs each spring and occur at the end of April, usually as the last match of the season.
A typical agenda for the Alumni Game day includes the following:
- Women’s Alumni Game at 11:00am
- Men’s Alumni Game at 1:00pm
- BBQ Lunch for All (served 12:30 to 3:30p)
- Award Presentations and Farewell to Graduating Seniors
The Alumni Game is a crucial part of connecting past and present, and maintaining the fraternal bond that is forged on the pitch. It is also an important time for Alumni to support their clubs financially, and while attendance is free to all, Alumni are encouraged to bring a check to give back to the Club however large or small they can. In the past, donations have ranged from $25 to thousands, and each donation matters enormously.
Donations are 100% Tax Deductible and checks should be made out to Babson College, with a notation for ‘Babson Men’s Rugby’ or ‘Babson Women’s Rugby’ in the memo field. Babson Rugby has long lived by the notion that ‘Dues are For Life’ and your continued support is greatly appreciated.
