Chairman's Welcome


Welcome to our website, I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.

Based at the Blackmore in the heart of Sidmouth and with over 130 years of rugby under our belt we are truly an amateur community club.We have three senior teams plus a Colts team.Our 1st team is in Western Counties West and most of the players have progressed from junior teams.

The junior section of our club has an ethos of fair play, inclusivity and enjoyment. There are junior teams at every age group from under 7`s to under 16`s with some 270 members - both boys and girls. We hope to soon have our first girls team.We also run an annual charity sevens tournament in May and the occasional veterans game!

Sidmouth Rugby Football Club Limited is a company limited by guarantee. The club has an enthusiastic board of directors dedicated to taking the club forward in the same spirit as that laid down by the countless committee volunteers over previous years.

Current projects include improving membership benefits and communication and the upgrading and extending our facilities and infrastructure at Sidford, our second home. The pitch refurbishment is not complete but we shall need to wait until next Season use them. We now have a superb new pavilion and car park there to supplement the existing facilities of changing rooms, two senior and two junior pitches.

At the Blackmore our clubhouse has two bars and is an excellent venue for our Match Day Experiences. Work is planned to upgrade and refurbish these facilities in the near future to make it an even more attractive facility for local community and business use. We cater for both sponsors and supporters offering excellent hospitality and an opportunity to watch some exciting rugby.

We are proud of our strong connections with the local business community and offer a range of advertising and sponsorship opportunities.

Hopefully I’ve given you a flavour and snapshot of what Sidmouth Rugby is about, Please do browse the site where you can find so much more excellent  information and detail.
