    Not only that:”There are also a number of prominent amateur sports teams that compete at rugby union, women’s basketball, women’s football and wheelchair basketball…Other amateur teams represent the club at ice hockey, athletics, baseball, cycling, field hockey, figure skating, and volleyball.”The things I didn’t know about my club. Although I do know that we used to have an American Football team, which folded a few years back.
