Friendly rugby club based at Memorial Park, West Ham. Five minutes from West Ham Station. Three men's teams and Vixens ladies team. Whatever level you wish to play at, competitive or social, we have a team for you. Welcome to the East London family.
East London RFC is based at Memorial Park, West Ham, at the very heart of the East End. We offer three men's teams and a Vixens ladies team.
We are less than five minutes from West Ham Station which is served by the Jubilee, District, and Hammersmith & City Tube lines, the Docklands Light Railway and c2c overground services. We have a direct link to Stratford International Station and London City Airport and are just a short journey from the centre of London and the Canary Wharf financial district. We can rightly lay claim to being the best connected rugby club. Free off street parking is also available.
Our 1st XV are the reigning Essex Intermediate Cup winners for 2018/19 and only narrowly missed promotion from London 3 Essex after a play-off. Our 2nd and 3rd XVs play in the Shepherd Neame Essex Merit Table divisions and the 3rd XV won the Division 5 Plate final last season.
Ouv Vixens ladies play in Women's National Challenge 1 East. In 2016 they were Women's Team of the Year in the National Rugby Awards. Last season they had players variously capped by Essex and Middlesex County sides. Recently they had four players selected for the NatWest RugbyForce Invitational Challenge match at Twickenham in a team coached by England legend Will Greenwood.
Our teams train on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm. We have a team for you whether you want to play competitively or socially.
Everyone is assured of a warm welcome either on the pitch, on the touchline, or in our clubhouse with two comfortable bar areas. We pride ourself on our facilities, which includes three floodlit pitches and a 3G training area. We have Rugby Football Union accreditation.
We are always looking for new players, supporters, and sponsors. If you look after us, we'll look after you. Experienced players welcome, or even if you've never picked up a rugby ball before and want to give it a try.
If you are a past player returning to the game or have relocated to East London either through work or studies, come and join the East London rugby family. We offer an attractive membership package with discounted rates for students or the unwaged.
