Successful rugby clubs are more than just victorious teams on the pitch, players and head coaches are vitally important but so are the many dedicated volunteers who work hard behind the scenes to help the club operate. We are currently looking for volunteers to get involved, and depending on your skills / experience and time available, we’ll probably have a volunteering opportunity which is right for you.

  • Give something back to an organisation that they have benefited from

  • Feel valued and part of a team

  • Use their professional skills and knowledge to benefit others

  • Meet new people and make new friends

  • Match-day preparation

  • Stewarding

  • Website development

  • Setting up clubhouse for events / lunches

  • Membership enhancement

  • Business Club Organisation
