Letchworth Garden City RFC run a full Minis’ Rugby section for boys and girls aged 5 to 12, plus a Junior section for ages 13 to 18. Each age group are managed by RFU qualified coaches.

We pride ourselves on creating an environment where the needs of the player are put first and every player can develop to the very best of their ability. We strive to provide a growing community-based rugby club, offering first class sports, leisure and social facilities to the communities of Letchworth Garden City and surrounding areas.


The playing season runs from the 1st Sunday in September through to the 2nd Sunday in May. There will be training or fixtures every Sunday morning (weather and pitch conditions permitting) except during Christmas and Easter. Minis’ coaching (Under 6s to Under 12s) is held on Sunday mornings from 9.30am, and Juniors’ coaching (Under 13s to Under 18s) is held on Sunday mornings from 11am and specified weekday evenings.  Matches are usually held on Sundays.


Behind the Leisure Centre off Baldock Road in Letchworth Garden City.  Ample free parking is available on-site.

How to join?

We offer free taster sessions for the first 4 weeks - so simply come along and see how your child enjoys playing rugby. Your Team Manager will be able to take you through the membership process and discuss joining fees.

What to bring?

A water bottle and appropriate sportswear. Footwear should be studded rugby (or football) boots. Letchworth RFC strongly recommend using a gumshield in contact training and during matches for Under 9s and above. Rugby is a winter sport so waterproofs and warm clothing should be considered - for players and for parents! Muddy kit and boots are not allowed in the Clubhouse, so it would be a good idea to have a kit bag with a clean change of footwear/clothes.
