Based at Chapel Gate for over 30 years, Bournemouth Rugby Club (BRC) has thriving Seniors, Colts, Minis and Youth sections (including Girls and Touch rugby).

There are 21 teams across Seniors, Ladies, Juniors and Mini’s, from the U6s through to the BRC First XV, who play in the South West Premier League.

BRC also play wheelchair rugby, with U14/15 and U18 girls’ teams.

Encouraging a love of rugby at an early age, in a supportive and fun environment, is fundamental to the club, who coach in 18 schools per week via Community Partner Rippa Rugby, along with their apprentices.

BRC also hold an annual Youth and Mini Fest, where approximately 160 teams, from U7s to U16s, compete in games of rugby.
