Rowntree RUFC, the oldest rugby union club in York has celebrated its 128th year in 2022! For over a century, we have provided a friendly and supportive environment for players of all abilities to enjoy the great game of rugby. We are always happy to see new faces and always welcome new members!
Whilst the Club is run entirely by volunteers, annual subs and match-day fees help us cover the costs of:
Playing & training kit and equipment (e.g. shields, tackle bags, medical kit, balls, etc.);
Flag poles, pitch markings and everyday upkeep
Without the referee, there would be no game
Protection for unforeseen incidents/issues
POST MATCH FOOD
Behind every great rugby player, is a line of other rugby players waiting to be fed
Play the greatest game in the world.
Laundry (a necessary evil, according to our front row players).
