    About Hitchin Rugby Club

    Hitchin Rugby Club is a registered Charity whose mission is to participate in and promote the sport of rugby at all age levels within the Hitchin area. This includes Mini (U5-U12), Youth (U13-U18), Seniors (18+), Vets (35+), Ladies and Girls Rugby (U13, U15 and U18) as well as Adult Touch-Rugby. This participation and promotion is accomplished through various means including playing, coaching, refereeing and community development.


    Research has shown that the Hitchin Rugby Club was founded in 1865, some six years before the Rugby Football Union in 1871 and came under the umbrella of the Football Association

    The club was reformed in 1954. Highlights have included playing at Twickenham in the final of the national Junior RFU Cup in 1993 and the establishment of the country's first Academy.


    As members of the Herts RFU and RFU, Hitchin's 1st XV competes in the London 3 North West league whilst the other two senior men's sides compete in merit tables. All of our youth teams have matches on a regular basis and compete in the Saracens Hertfordshire/Middlesex Leagues and County Championships. See the individual team pages for fixtures, results etc.

    Our Women's section has two teams. The Women's 1XV play in the Womens NC 1 Midlands league and the 2XV play in the Women's Challenge Series South East (North) league.

    Currently our membership stands at over 1200 people, including active, family and associate members. We are a community-focused club and welcome new members regardless of playing experience. Our motto is "No Experience Necessary, Just Spirit"

    From a geographic standpoint, our members live and work in Hitchin, as well as some of the towns and villages in the North Herts area. Many originally hail from countries all over the world, including; Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, Hungary, Portugal, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand as well as England. Various sections of the club tour once a year to different parts of the country and occasionally overseas to play against other clubs.

    The club is fully registered as a Charity with The Charity Commission and has been awarded the Whole Club Seal of Approval by the RFU for the coaching and welfare of children & young persons, including child protection and for it's inclusivity.

    All of these factors, along with individual member commitment, a CAMRA award winning bar, an extensive community development programme and a thriving Mini & Youth Section contribute to Hitchin Rugby Club being probably the best rugby club in Hertfordshire in all physical, competitive and social aspects. We are certainly the largest member sports club in North Hertfordshire.


    Since our humble beginnings, thousands of players have proudly worn Hitchin's colours of maroon and white. More than half of these players had their introduction to the sport and played their first games of rugby in a Hitchin Rugby Club shirt, coming through the ranks of the Mini and Youth Sections thanks to our 100+ qualified coaches and volunteers.

    It is the objective of Hitchin Rugby Club to continue to participate in and promote the sport of rugby, welcoming new members into the club on a constant basis.

    Hitchin Rugby Club is continually seeking new players from all levels of experience to join any of the following programmes: Mens, Ladies, U13-U18 Boys, U13, U15 and U15 Girls, U6-U12 Girls and Boys or Vets and Adult Touch-Rugby. Whether a seasoned veteran or new to the sport, there is a place for your contributions to the continued success of Hitchin Rugby Club both on and off the pitch.
