WELCOME
Wimbledon Rugby Football Club, Minis and Youth, is a great place for kids to play rugby! We're part of one of the founding clubs of the RFU (we celebrated our 150th anniversary in 2015). So if you live in the Wimbledon, Raynes Park, South West London or the North Surrey area, come on down and play rugby at Wimbledon RFC. Subs for the full 2016/17 season are £140 for single children, £210 for family membership and £100 for girls rugby. Inclusive rugby is free.

The culture of the club is very much one of parental involvement. Whilst we try to keep annual fees as low as possible, because the vast majority of activities are carried out by volunteers, we have had to increase fees this season.

JOINING WIMBLEDON RFC
For newcomers, any appropriate clothing can be worn and you are welcome to a couple of try-out sessions before deciding if you want to join. Please take note of the requirements for gum shields and appropriate footwear below. A player without a gumshield will not be able to take part in any contact drills or games.

To get in touch, and to arrange a free try out, contact the relevant age group manager here or just turn up for a 10am sharp start every Sunday from September to May.

Here's how to find us

Membership and registration are organised by age group managers who can supply the necessary paperwork, or you can download the forms from the link below and fill them in before you come along. The club registration form needs to be filled in every year, but you only need to download and complete the RFU form if you are new to club rugby. If you are transferring from another club we can trace your RFU number using your date of birth.

KIT
Club colours are claret and Cambridge blue. Shirts, shorts, socks and training tops are from Akuma, ordered via age group managers.

See the Kit page for more details.

All players U9 and above must have - and wear - a gum shield before being permitted to take part in sessions. For younger children gum shields are encouraged. The heat-moulded gum shields are adequate, but older players are recommended to have correctly fitted mouth guards.

Rugby or football boots can be worn, but must be fitted with rugby studs or have moulded plastic studs or 'blades' with no sharp edges. We recommend the one-piece aluminium studs that carry the BSI 'Kitemark'. Trainers should not be worn as they do not provide enough protection and are not much use on wet grass or mud.
