The rain free summer in England won’t stop Chiswick from starting the season on time due to their artificial grass pitch, which the RFU have told them is the most popular in the country. Active in Chiswick since 1958, the club has Senior, Juniors and Minis sides. They were all well represented at the recent Middlesex County Volunteer wards, held at Twickenham.

Club Captain Gabs Lowe enthuses, “Chiswick Rugby Club seniors have a fantastic balance of competitive and social rugby in their locker. Fielding 3 sides weekly and a vets (over 35s), there is rugby to be played by all. With a state-of-the-art 4g pitch, training is always well attended midweek on Tuesdays and Thursdays under floodlights and with a 'one club' mentality, everyone is welcome.

“Match days at Dukes Meadows are always popular for local residents and if all three sides are playing at home there's bound to be a social event afterwards.

“The club is incredibly ambitious and always seeking promotion with three professional coaches pushing the high standards.”

The Minis and Juniors section, started in 2011, has grown up to Under 15s and developed sufficiently to appoint a Juniors chair for the first time in the club’s history, Gauthier De Beer. They regularly play friendlies and tournaments and the highlight is an annual tour, as well as joining in club socials such as bonfire night.

The club welcomes boys and girls up to the age of 11, and boys from 12 to under 15
