About Ironsides Rugby
We are probably the most social rugby club in South London. Everyone is guaranteed a warm welcome, irrespective of age or playing ability.
We are located on Burntwood Lane, Earlsfield. The clubhouse is situated on the junction with Openview.
Our view is that children come to the Club to play rugby, but more importantly to have fun. We do not have fixed A and B teams, but maintain a fluid squad: everyone in the squad gets to play in matches. We aim to create an inclusive friendly environment that is welcoming to children, parents and visitors. Our policy seemed to have work as having started with 27 players we now have around 750 members playing in age groups from Under 5's to Under 18's. Each season we attend matches, festivals and organise tours in the UK and Europe for some age groups.
See New Members page for details.
We meet for training and home games at the clubhouse on Openview on Sunday mornings for a 10.00am start see Pitch Locations . The session finishes between 12 noon and 12.30pm. See Individual Team pages for details and check Fixtures to see where we are this week.
An elected Committee, in accordance with the Club and Junior Section Constitution, runs the Club on a day-to-day basis. The normal contact point for parents is their child's Year Group Head Coach and Team Manager. All of the Club Officers, Committee members, Coaches, Managers and other helpers are unpaid volunteers. We can never have too many volunteers. Interested? See Kate Pettitt, the Junior Section Hon. Secretary or do talk to you Head Coach or Year Group Manager
