Kenilworth RFC is a traditional town rugby club that currently (16/17 season) plays rugby in RFU Midlands 1 West (level 6). The club regularly fields 1st, Cavaliers (2nd), 3rd, Colts and Pirates (Vets) sides and is renowned for playing attractive, flowing rugby that is enjoyed by people across Warwickshire.
Season 2012/13 saw us win Mids 2 west south, losing only two league games throughout the season. Since then, there has been continuous consolidation and improvement back in Mids 1 (West).
A significant number of our senior players are 'home grown', having come through our highly successful Mini & Junior and Colts sections and more recently, our Barbarians. Many have gone on to be selected for County rugby and beyond, demonstrating the respected talent pool that Kenilworth RFC produces.
The club has experienced coaches to improve player skill levels and game awareness, as well as using specialist coaches to take specific sessions. Recently, this has included ex-Leicester and England Prop Darren Garforth (scrummaging), and the Portuguese national coaching team (game play). Last season, we welcomed back a Kenilworth legend as Head Coach, Wayne Morgan. Wayne will be assisted by Daniel Careless (Forwards/Strength & Conditioning) and Dom Carrick - all Kenilworth people!
Kenilworth RFC operates an open door policy to new players wishing to get involved, whether it be to push yourself to be the best player you can be or to earn yourself a well deserved pint after the game. Players of all levels are encouraged to come down and see what the mighty K's' have to offer!
Training is held on Tuesday & Thursday evenings @ 7pm, and all are welcome. These nights are generally for 'serious' players at 1st XV, 2nd XV and Colt level, although this does not preclude keen players from the 3rd XV. Training is either on the main pitch or at the Rocky Lane site. There is also touch rugby on a Wednesday evening on the main pitch @ 7pm, and this is open to all and a good mix of players turn up and play regularly.
For the 2016/17 season, Kenilworth will again maintain their link with the University of Warwick Medical School that will see them train and play at Kenilworth.
