STUDENTS NEW TO THE AREA
The club’s men's first XV play at level 7, Midlands 2 west south, a local competitive league. We are a leading club in South Warwickshire and also one of the top clubs in Warwickshire.
Our very successful Colts set up has seen many players graduate from junior through to senior rugby and is/has been, arguably, one of the strongest set ups in the Midlands.
The second XV has always been strong and plays in a competitive second XV league and has regularly won the Warwickshire Second XV Cup.
The third XV occasional comes out and provides a ‘development’ platform for young players to play and learn from more senior former first team players in a competitive environment.
Kenilworth Pirates (an over 35 (and beyond) team) play a number of games during the season and represent a strong part of the club.
The Kenilworth Barbarians - an under 23 squad was created a few years back to keep our younger players in touch with the club when they go off to university. This squad plays about five games per season and helps retain the many quality young players we bring through our own system as well as attracting other young players.
Our Ladies section was formed two years ago and in their first season of league rugby they won their league and now reside in NC Midlands 1. They are currently running two teams, one a development squad.
There is a very strong Minis and Juniors section which is represented at every age group and now provides a seamless supply of quality players through to the Colts and the senior club.
The club has always had strong links with the University of Warwick and Coventry University.
Training at the club is on a Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm – generally for first and second XV’s, Colts and the more energetic third XV players. Wednesday nights is ‘touch rugby’ night attended by many young and old players. Training takes part at either the main club or at our pitches off Rocky Lane, close to the club. It is under the direction of Wayne Morgan who generally coaches the backs, and ex Exeter hooker, Chris Whitehead who takes the forwards. Ladie's training takes place on a Tuesday and Wednesday.
The club’s bar facilities are open every weekday night from 6pm with the exception of a Tuesday, all day Saturday and Sunday from 11am. A fine selection of beers, including real ales, wine and gin is available. The club runs a membership card system that offers a discount to paid up members.
We offer a special reduced membership rate for Students.
