Rowntree Family Day – 21 August 2021

What’s better than a summer day out with your family and friends? A summer day out with family and friends and a rugby game, obviously. Ah, but what’s better than a summer day out with family, friends, and rugby? Well, naturally, a summer day out with family, friends, rugby, a bouncy castle (just for kids), a giant inflatable obstacle course, a food truck, and a raffle!!!! So, we are bringing you ROWNTREE RUFC FAMILY DAY 2021! All Trees families and friends are most welcome to our home at New Earswick Sports and Social Club on Saturday 21 August from 1pm to 6pm for an afternoon of merriment to celebrate the Club we all love!


Preseason is now in full swing!

In the sweltering heat or the drenching rain, our players are training hard during our Preseason, powered by the Club’s ambition to field both a First XVs and our rekindled Lions team most Saturdays. Come and join a cracking bunch, hone your rugby skills and enhance your physical performance (we are talking about rugby, obviously)! Training sessions take place on Tuesdays (20:00 – 22:00 From YSJ)  and Thursdays (19:00 – 21:00 at New Earswick). For more information, please contact our Club Captain Jamie at


Return to Rugby avec scrums and mauls!

All players welcomed the reintroduction of scrums and mauls in training. From the 7th of August, adult full-contact matches will be permitted under step E2 of the RFU roadmap. This means that backs can now drop the ball merrily, knowing that the pack will do their best to win it back!! As a Club, the welfare of our players is our priority, so we want to assure everyone that all precautionary steps are being taken to manage the return to full contact, especially after such a long period without scrums and mauls.

You know you want one! If you don’t, someone you know will want one. The more we order, the cheaper they get, so get your orders in now, so we can secure delivery in time for winter! Please submit your enquiry via the contact form on site, stating how many you would like
