Get in touch

If you or your children would like to play Rugby at Old Ruts then it’s best to get in touch with the Team Manager of the right age group. You can find out more here.

Get involved

We always need more volunteers. They’re essential to the successful running of the Club and a very rewarding way to get involved with your local community. No rugby experience is necessary as we can show you what you need to know. We also have a growing number of supporting roles from event planning, membership administration, social media and comms. If you’d like to find out more then please contact a Team Manager of your age group or any member of the committee.

Get here

We play Rugby across a few venues in Merton. Please check with your Team Manager or look at the fixtures page to find out where you’re playing or training.
