Abingdon Rugby Club is a community club with a current emphasis of encouraging every player to achieve full potential whilst enjoying both the sporting and social aspects of the game. Founded in 1931, Abingdon RUFC boasts a playing membership of 250+ with a full range of Mini and Junior teams to compliment the three Senior sides. Fully qualified coaching is available to those of any age or gender who wish to improve performance or who have simply never played the sport and want to give it a go! We enjoy our own dedicated facilities of a large modern clubhouse with four pitches and a floodlit training area. For any further information or details of membership opportunities (playing or otherwise), please don't hesitate to contact us.
The Mini/Juniors Rugby Season at Abingdon RUFC starts on the first Sunday in September, and the Senior sides kick off the second Saturday in September. Senior preseason training starts on Tuesday 3rd July at 19:00 and will run every Tuesday and Thursday from then on. We welcome anyone over the age of 17, to senior preseason training - whether you have never touched a rugby ball in your life or are a seasoned pro, we welcome you to join in. For any Sevens player enthusiasts, we will be starting Sevens training on Tuesday 19 June in preparation for Abingdons annual Sevens Tournament on Saturday 30 June.
Abingdon RFC Minis welcomes players from age 5 years to 16 years. The practical lower age limit is 6 although well co-ordinated rising 5s would not be turned away. Under 6’s are unable to play in competitive games for insurance reasons. We also have a Colts team and 2 Senior sides and it doesn't matter how old you are if you can run around and pass a ball we will welcome you with open arms.
