Bowdoin College’s Pickard Fields cover 35 acres of some of the best groomed field space in New England. Blessed with excellent natural drainage, the fields are supported by in-ground irrigation and are well-tended by a devoted field crew. Bowdoin College has been the host site for many NESCAC, New England Rugby, and Northeast Regional Rugby Tournaments for Division I and II men and women. The USA Women’s Eagles trained on our beautiful pitch during their 3-week Residential Camp prior to World Cup.
