Smiths RFC is an up and coming rugby club based in between Cheltenham and Bishop’s Cleeve at Newland’s Park. We currently have first and second rugby teams, and have ambitions of starting a thirds/vets team.
Our first team are currently playing in the Gloucester 2 league, having won the Gloucester 3 league in 2014-2015.
In the 2014-2015 season the first team also won the level 11 county cup and the Cheltenham combination minor cup.
Our second team, dubbed ‘the Hamsters’, compete in the local merit table. The Hamsters have experienced a resurgence in the last few years and almost achieved promotion in the 2014-2015.
We train on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s at 7pm, at Newland’s Park. We are always looking for new players of all ability to welcome into our great club.
Please browse the website for information on current players, fixtures, sponsors and our social media accounts.
Whilst we train and play our rugby matches very seriously, we have a strong emphasis on keeping the fun and social atmosphere that has been the blueprint of our 60 year Rugby club history here in Cheltenham.
After every game we go into the clubhouse and enjoy each other’s company, as well as running monthly themed socials in and around Cheltenham.
One of our main principles is to bring in younger players and get them involved with the club. Our seconds rugby team, the Hamsters, is for players who want to turn up and enjoy throwing a rugby ball around.
On the outside, Smiths looks like an ordinary club. However, the reality is that it is so much more. Smiths is a community, a brotherhood, and every player recognizes what a special and enjoyable experience it is to be part of it. If you are interested in playing Rugby with a great fun club based in Cheltenham please come along to Newlands Park Cheltenham on a Tuesday or Thursday evening at 7pm for training or email email@example.com to arrange. Smiths rugby club is a great place for anyone regardless of whether you play a high standard or looking to get in to playing rugby.
