about WEST LONDON Rugby Club

A Warm Welcome to WEST LONDON Rugby Club ... C'monnnnnnNNNN!

West London Rugby Club was established in 2000, following the merger of Old Gaytonians' (1934), Roxeth Manor (1960), and Old Kingsburians' (1962) rugby clubs. Today, we carry on the traditions of the founding clubs in providing competitive, social rugby in the West London area, priding ourselves on our friendly and social atmosphere for players, members, families, friends and supporters alike.

what to expect at west London RUGBY CLUB

Our focus throughout the rugby club is on camaraderie, that rugby is played and enjoyed amongst friends. Central too is the urge to maintain a competitive edge, whether at training or on the field come the weekend. Accordingly, post-match socials, club social events and club tours, both at home and abroad, are a focal part of the club's character.

The club attracts players of all abilities and experiences, from seasoned players to people new to rugby. They all play in one of our two club sides: the 1XV (Middlesex Merit Table Division 3) and the 2XV (Middlesex Merit Table Division 5). As a club, we also host 2-3 Vets fixtures in a season and, in the summer months, have a Sevens team under the stewardship of Club Captain and Sevens Coach Richie Parillon. For playing opportunities send us a message.

Richie Parillon, our Club Captain & record cap-holder, has been with us from 18 years of age

"People always say that rugby changes their life, and for me, West London RFC changed mine. From the honourable old boys that looked after me when I joined to the dynamism of youth now that makes this club truly special."

Players & MEMBERS from 20 Nations

West London Rugby Club, in every sense, is a truly global team. Our international players complement the club's local and indigenous players and members. Regardless of nationality, you will find a mix of working professionals, students studying at London universities, and friends and family of existing members. And to date, we have had players from Japanese and Zimbabwean internationals to former rugby league professionals to keen amateurs. Discover more about our team.

“I could not wish to have found a better club. Amazing teammates, great coaches and a friendly & supportive environment throughout the club. You will struggle to find a better place to spend your Wednesdays and Saturdays.”

Weekly Training Sessions

Training sessions take place on Wednesdays (19:00) under the watchful eye of Director of Rugby Andy Flavin, with a focus on team tactics and cohesion, fitness and light skills work. Pre-season training for the 2023/24 season is now underway. Are you interested in joining us for pre-season training? Feel free to send an enquiry to our Team Manager, Dave Williams.

Comprehensive, Modern Facilities

Our facilities include a dedicated clubhouse with a subsidised bar/grill and on-site changing facilities. A floodlit training area & scrum machine, and a perfectly-manicured match pitch (you will often see the groundsman outside pruning the pitch with a pair of scissors). A big screen with Sky & BT Sport showing domestic and international games. Finally, a dozen-plus well preserved and vintage old boys.

You can find us at: London Marathon Playing Field Greenford, Birkbeck Avenue, Greenford, UB6 8LS.

Josh Baker (18) had never played rugby but has taken to the game quickly in a short space of time

“West London welcomed me in from the get-go despite having never played rugby. The coaches and my teammates have helped me to develop and improve as a player making the transition from an ex-footballer to a rugby player.”
