Bournemouth Rugby is a thriving community rugby club one of the oldest in the area, the origins dating back to 1893.

Today, Bournemouth first XV play in National Three South West, which is level five in the English Clubs Rugby Union Championship. With thriving Seniors, Colts, Academy & Youth sections and Touch Rugby. Bournemouth rugby has been awarded RFU accreditation.

We at Bournemouth rugby are proud not just of the players but also coaches and volunteers who without their valued assistance we couldn't be as successful as we are.

We are always on the lookout for new members of any age and ability. With the exciting new memberships including free touch rugby we believe that we can put rugby at the heart of Bournemouth and the local area.
