Canterbury Rugby Club offers many things. A thriving social life, the chance to make new and long lasting friendships and feeling part of a real community are just some of the pleasures as well as being part of a great game. As East Kent’s leading community club we pride ourselves on providing sport and fun for a wide range of people.

From kids of Under 7 learning the joys of the game in our successful Junior teams, the Ladies sides and a successful Wheelchair Rugby section through to the many supporters who enjoy high quality National League men’s rugby for eight months of the year. In the summer we don’t go to sleep.

Among other things there is Touch Rugby, golf competitions, our famous City Lunches and a spectacular May Ball which is recognised  as one of the city’s biggest social occasions.

Whether you are a newcomer or an old friend we can assure you of a warm welcome at a club where you will meet some great people.

Come and find out for yourself.
