The club offers a variety of playing opportunities for players of all abilities, experience and aspirations. Whether you’re young, not so young, male, female, experienced or new to the game, Canterbury RFC should have an option for you:

Men’s Rugby Union

Senior male players are roughly divided into three categories:

  • Contracted – these players form the wider 1st XV squad and are registered with the RFU to play semi-professionally in National League 2 (South)
  • Development – players who have aspirations to play for the club’s top three teams and beyond.
  • Social – players who simply want to have a good, competitive match at the weekend when other commitments allow it. Perfect for veterans, players learning the game for the first time or returning to it after a long period out.

Training is on Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting at 7.30pm with games usually played on Saturday afternoons.

The club has run a Women’s team for over 25 years. As with the rest of the club, all abilities and levels are experience are very welcome so why not come down and give it a go?!
