Community

Henley Rugby Football Club is a sustainable community rugby club which started life in 1930 as Old Henleiensians.

Over the years we have built a reputation for providing a first class venue for everyone in the town and beyond to enjoy their rugby. From mini members and their parents to our successful women’s team, to our semi-pro Hawks outfit, we are a club that is built on clear foundations of contribution to the local community, where everyone is welcome and enjoys a good time.

Henley’s floodlight Dry Leas ground on the Marlow Road boasts one of the finest pitches in the country, with many representative matches played there such as the Under 21s World Cup. The ground is also currently home to Wasps A and Wasps Academy.

In addition to a gym and all weather Tiger Turf there is a well appointed Clubhouse with bar and catering facilities for events small and large. Barely a stones throw from the river, Henley Rugby Football Club reflects everything one might expect from the world famous regatta town of Henley on Thames.

The club maintains a fully inclusive playing structure covering the broad spectrum of a contemporary rugby club and has around 1000 members. There are currently 5 adult teams, including women’s, and 12 junior age group teams for U7s to U19s. There are around 400 mini/junior family memberships each year

Henley Rugby Club is strongly town focused; in the rugby season over 2000 per week use the facilities and we also support many local Henley events. We have strong connections to other sports clubs in the town, cricket, rowing, hockey etc. and are members of The Henley Partnership. We also have strong commercial links to local businesses many of which sponsor and support us in a variety of ways. We are proud of the support we receive from our sponsors; Crest Nicholson, Invesco Perpetual, Savills, Bremont, Savile Row Travel, Phyllis Court and up to 50 local businesses including retailers, pubs, restaurants and the schools community.
