About The Club

We’re a rugby club established January 2013 playing at Sandyacres, Ashford.

We have returned to the Corinthian and Amateur values of the past where everything is done on a voluntary basis.

We have 6 key tenets:

1. A club’s success should be gauged by the contentment of its members
2. A club exists for the benefit of its members
3. A club should be an egalitarian association where every member, and his or her opinions, are valued
4. A member’s abilities are of secondary importance to his or her dedication
5. Where possible, requirements of the club should be fulfilled at no cost by the members
6. The club should be at the heart of, and open to, the community
We wish to create an environment that embraces those values, one where camaraderie,
hospitality and commitment are entrenched, but most of all one that is epitomised by fun.

  1. Hi there, looking for a vets team to play some rugby and have some fun with. Ideally I need to play Sundays due to childcare but could try to work it if vets only play Saturdays.
    Would be interested in hearing what’s available.

  2. Hi Simon,

    Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately we do not have a vets team – our players of vets age usually help out Ashford RFC and Dover RFC who run vets side. If you are interested in playing on Saturdays we are always looking for new players to get involved.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

  3. Hello
    i am emailing to enquire if you have or know of a wheelchair rugby team around the Ashford area? If someone could email me back that would be great.

    many thanks

  4. Hi Darren,

    Nothing in the Ashford area – I do believe Canterbury RFC have a wheelchair rugby team.
