For The Joy of Rugby!

Wallingford Rugby Club was founded in 1967, initially as Cholsey RFC. This means that season 2016/7 is our 49th year.

2017 will the club’s 50th anniversary! Put 8 July 2017 in your diary.

Having started with just enough players to make a team, it is with great pride that we can show 450 kids playing on a Sunday morning, put out 2 and sometimes 3 senior teams as well as a senior development squad that is an inspiration to the club.

The club can point to a number of players who started here that went on to play for first class rugby and even represent their country.  But while our club has come a long way, it is not the numbers and accolades that matter to us: it is the fun!  The proof of this is that Wallingford RFC manages to transition a higher number of players through from junior to senior rugby than most.

To play the best level of rugby possible with the resources available. Maintain a friendly, well organised club that encourages and develops younger players and coaches at all levels whilst keeping the social ethos and most importantly, to have fun!

Wallingford punches above its weight for a small town club. Our youth rugby has produced both male and female U20 internationals in 2013/4 and 2014/5 seasons. In 2010/11 our juniors were runners up in 3 of the 4 age groups at the County tournament. We have 15 junior players in the county Elite squads and a further 10 in the county development tier. Also 3 of our current U16s have made the Wasps development squad at Henley College for next year.

Our Maidens section has over 30 players and were unstoppable last season with 5 girls being called in the regional squad, 4 of whom have gone on to represent the South West, including the captain. Our minis also have had a stunning season last year where we were represented in 3 of the 6 A finals and 4 of the 6 B finals at the Oxfordshire. These results show our inclusive approach to coaching mini rugby is yielding great results whilst encouraging all children to enjoy their rugby.

Off the field Wallingford RFC is also flourishing. The club’s annual beer and music festival, Rugfest, brings hundreds of new faces to the Club. Our Sportsman’s dinners have packed out the Sports Park’s function room to hear rugby legends such as Derek Quinnell, Nigel Owens, Phil Bennett, Willie John McBride and Gareth Chilcott and more…

Since its founding in 1967 Wallingford RFC has become a major presence both on the Oxfordshire sporting scene and in the wider context of amateur rugby in Britain. As a club we are committed to build on this success and look forward with confidence to furthering the enjoyment of rugby football in this area for many years to come.
