The 2018-19 rugby season starts again Sunday 2 September 2018, 10am

We look forward to welcoming all players back to Wimbledon RFC and hope to see some new recruits too. We welcome boys and girls from Reception age all the way to U18. Boys and girl play together up to and including U11s, then we have boys squads to U18 and girls squads at U13 and U15. We are proud to offer Inclusive Rugby for kids with SENs. Older rugby can be enjoyed at U21 and adult men and womens teams.

Wimbledon RFC is particularly popular with kids and parents from Australia, NZ and South Africa and are thrilled that over 100 different schools have their kids playing with us on Sundays.

More details about the new season will be updated here over the coming weeks. In the meantime, whether new to the club or a longtime player, we look forward to seeing you at 10am on 2nd September.

Order your Wimbledon RFC kit ready for the new season - Saturday 28 July

At the beginning of the season it can take a few weeks for kit to arrive... so this year we are running a try-on and ordering day this Saturday (28 July 2018) at the club to try and improve things. We'll be there 10am to 1pm.

Our kit people - Akuma - are sending through a set of sample clothing so you can try on before you order for the season ahead. Avoid the issues with ordering online! We will have order forms for each age group and then ask for either cheque on the day or they can transfer to club account.

General kit info is here: http://wmrfc.co.uk/kit

Try all your old kit on and bring along any second hand kit for the club to sell at the start of the season (clean please!). All funds raised from second hand kit sales go back to the club.

Pitch plan 22 April 2018 - end of season at home

So at last, the season draws to a close. Hope everyone has had lots of fun. Youth are all away, other than U12s who are hosting the Italian team Petrarca Rugby (https://www.petrarcarugby.it/) - benvenuto!

The minis have their awards today. The plan for this is as below...

Presentations to start from 10am in the following order Inclusive, U6s, U7s, U8s, U9s

Each age group should gather, one at a time, on the lower patio (use the steps as a “stage”) for prize giving. Managers from each age group should keep an eye on progress and make sure their group is ready as soon as the previous one has finished. When not at presentations, each age group can be training.

Food served from 11:30: if Inclusive and U6s go at that time, the other age groups can then follow afterwards.

Rugby starts again 2nd September 2018. Have a lovely summer everyone.
