Beantown and Chicago North Shore join the WPL. Exciting times are ahead as the WPL expands from 8 to 10 teams for Fall 2017. Beantown, original member of the WPL, returns and will join the Eastern Conference, and newcomer North Shore will be on the Western Conference (with us!). Read all about it from USA Rugby.
