There's something for everyone at Henley Rugby Club - a leader in its field


Welcome to Henley Rugby Club:
Henley Rugby 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 recent 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 Club
house with bar and catering facilities for
events small and large. Barely a stones
throw from the river, Henley Rugby 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 600 members. There
are currently 5 adult teams, including
women’s, and 12 junior age group teams
for U7s to U19s. There are around 300
mini/junior family memberships each

The 2012-13 season was the senior
team’s, the Hawks, most successful for
many years. In front of a record crowd
of 3270 they became league champions
playing the flowing rugby they have
played all season. As league champions
they were unbeaten at home, scored a
record number of 185 tries, were the
highest points scorers at over 1200 and
had the best defensive record in the
league. Newly promoted to League 1
they are one of the top 40 teams in the

Henley Rugby Club is strongly town

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 primary sponsor and commercial

Henley Rugby Club is a great resource for the local community. The Hawks are now on a winning streak and recent form suggest promotion could be possible next season! As well as other senior teams they have a thriving junior section. The clubhouse can be hired for functions and they have a Tiger Turf pitch that can be hired for 5 a side.
