Pitch plan

Finally... PARKING

Thanks to those of you who helped by listening to the marshalls and parked away from the private roads which surround the club. Your efforts are much appreciated. Simply - don't try and park anywhere off Barham Road if you arrive after 9.30. And definitely don't park on the corners of junctions or restrict ambulance/fire engine access.

Pitch plan 28 January 2018

Welcome to all visitors. Let's hope for a great day of rugby.

Pitch plan is below. First though... parking. You are very welcome to park on-site but you must follow our parking policy. Specifically DO NOT BLOCK ACCESS TO RESIDENTS' PROPERTIES OR CAUSE BOTTLENECKS THAT COULD CAUSE AMBULANCES TO BE DELAYED.

Key thing: If you arrive after 9.30am do not enter Barham Road - park on the public roads off Copse Hill.

Two other notices

Quiz night! 9 March 2018

The most popular night of the year is back - Friday 9 March. So please start forming your teams now.

Teams must be between 8 – 10 people. Tickets are £15 per head, including hot food (delicious chilli con carne).

Please can each age group nominate a Team Lead (ideally team managers, nudge, nudge) who will i) collect all the money and ii) book their table behind the bar.

N.B. Individual tickets will not be sold, you must be in a team. No tickets will be sold on the night.

Don't miss out!

All training cancelled on Sunday 21 January 2018

Sadly the rain has mullered the pitches so all training is cancelled. The U16 game is off. At the time of writing (9pm on Sat) I don't know if the U14 game is on or not - please await instructions from your manager (u14@wmrfc.co.uk).

See below details of our half term rugby camp for U7-U14 (and 7s camp for U17-18).

Good news - the adult 1st XV won their third game of the season today against Bury St Edmonds.

For the rest of the season please park considerately...

On the topic of parking... PLEASE READ... the wet weather reduces our on-site parking capacity. This puts pressure on the surrounding roads. We have received far too many complaints from our neighbours complaining about inconsiderate parking - and worse - rude behaviour from our club members. This is not acceptable and parents behaving and parking badly stains our club's reputation.

You must follow our parking policy. Specifically DO NOT BLOCK ACCESS TO RESIDENTS' PROPERTIES OR CAUSE BOTTLENECKS THAT COULD CAUSE AMBULANCES TO BE DELAYED. If you arrive after 9.30am do not enter Barham Road - park on the public roads off Copse Hill.

Pitch plan for Sunday 14 January 2018

A very busy day today - welcome visitors - please follow our parking policy. Specifically DO NOT BLOCK ACCESS TO RESIDENTS' PROPERTIES OR CAUSE BOTTLENECKS THAT COULD CAUSE AMBULANCES TO BE DELAYED as the club is in the middle of private roads and we ask all club users to be mindful of the need to treat our neighbours with respect.

Pitch plan for Sunday 7 January 2018 - RUGBY IS BACK!

Hi all

After a long Christmas break rugby returns to Barham Road this Sunday (10am sharp remember!). A busy day with the U14s hosting Richmond.

Here's to a great second half of the season!

The club's First XV host Redruth on Saturday. Looking for their second win of the season they'd appreciate lots of home support. KO is 2pm this Saturday (6 Jan).

Wimbledon RFC - proud to support Age Grade codes of practice and RFC core values

We've updated our website with links to the seven codes of practice that underpin Age Grade Rugby: the set of principles that govern how all rugby should be coached and played from U6-U18. See more: http://wmrfc.co.uk/rfucorevalues

Great quote from Eddie Jones on Age Grade Rugby's codes

"Being more player-centred means that the focus is on potential rather than current ability and that the emphasis is on enjoyment and encouraging a life-long love of rugby. As our research shows, for children, enjoyment is more important than winning; especially if it means they get to play with their friends.

Prioritising winning is not what children want and does not fit with the ethos of Age Grade rugby."

Another great quote from Eddie Jones (with apologies to our Kiwi friends...)

“Sorry, I meant to say two sh**ty little islands.” Eddie Jones, England rugby union head coach, when asked to apologise for calling New Zealand “a sh**ty little island off the south coast of Australia".

Wishing you all a Happy New Year. Rugby resumes Sunday 7 January 2018.

Pitch plan Sunday 17 December 2017

It's the Minis (U6-U11) + Girls + Inclusive Christmas Party this Sunday.

Bacon rolls for adults available from 9am until 11.15am so please form an orderly Q! Minis presentations etc start from 11.30.

Rugby takes a Christmas break for two weeks after this Sunday. Training resumes Sunday 7 January 2018 at 10am sharp. Happy Christmas to everyone.
