Our Club

Ipswich Rugby Club is the 4th oldest rugby club in the world, founded in 1870.

It boasts two senior sides and a thriving youth section to be proud of. Our 1st XV will be playing in London 2 NE in the 2016/17 season. Our 2nd XV known as the Magpies play in Eastern Counties 2 South. We now look to have a strong season and compete well in London 2. We’ve also started a 3rd XV this season so there’s plenty of rugby to choose from.

We welcome to the club any players, however young or old and regardless of experience. The senior players train on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. You should aim to get to the club for 6.45pm for 7.30pm, this will give you the opportunity to meet our Director of Rugby, Tim Lloyd and our coaching team.

If you are not a player but love the game of rugby then please come and support the Club. Our senior fixtures are listed from our main menu, make it a date in your diary and make sure you come and see what you can get out of the game whether as a spectator, sponsor or even a potential future player. Full details of our fixture list are available and we know that you are going to find us a friendly, welcoming and a happy club.

Ipswich Rugby Club runs one of the largest mini and youth sections in the Eastern Counties. Training is on Sunday Mornings from 10:00am.
