Lightwater RFC was founded in 1975 after Doug Driver put an advert in the local paper looking for other like minded rugby players. That one small advert created interest and Lightwater RFC was born.
Based at the Lightwater Country Park, we are a small club looking to promote enjoyable rugby. We welcome new players of any experience level, whether you are new to the game or getting a little older but still wishing to play competitive rugby.
We train every Wednesday (7-9pm) outside Lightwater Leisure Centre and play most Saturday afternoons during the normal rugby season which runs from the end of August to May.
Our Head Coach Lee is level 2 qualified and has been involved with Lightwater RFC for over 15 years. Through Surrey, Lee has been able to develop his coaching knowledge and skills from professionals such as Brian Ashton, Graham Rowntree, Mark Mapletoft, Tony Diprose, Colin Edwards, John Kingston and Colin Osbourne.
You don’t even have to play rugby to be part of Lightwater RFC. We always like to hear the cheering of supporters on the sidelines, plus we have regular events in our social diary which all are welcome to.
For those who sign up as a social member, each season you’ll receive a free ticket to the End of Season Dinner & Dance and a free gift as a thank you for your continued support.
