Alton Rugby Football Club


Alton RFC has supported the local community for many years and continues to do so.

The club continues to support the local community with fund raising initiatives, supporting local schools with rugby specific coaching as well as organising rugby and non rugby competitions for county wide schools and clubs. We encourage the participation of males and females of all ages.

Alton RFC is a Model of Good Practice for its work in the community. For many years we have been working closely with Perins School & Community Sports College of Alresford, to deliver rugby and sports development programs within our local community. We co-host the annual Hampshire Schools Under 14 Tens competition which has now become the entry level Hampshire Schools Competition, with schools competing in one of the three competitions: Emerged Schools, Emerging Schools and Developing Schools. This competition is now leading many more schools into the Under 15 and Under 18 fifteen-a-side county competitions.

Examples of our work in the community include:

  • Running Outreach Sessions at local Secondary Schools to allow children to “Come and Try” rugby.
  • Hosting Tag Rugby Tournaments on behalf of our local Schools Sports Partnership.
  • Coaching in local schools to prepare them for various tournaments.
  • Maintaining Club – School links with most Secondary Schools and several Primary Schools.
  • Providing coaching and first aid support for Alton College rugby matches.
  • Organising a sporting competition called "It's a Knockout" for local Hampshire Primary Schools.
  • Hosting the very popular annual Alton Junior 7's tournament which will be in its twenty third year in 2010.
  • Organising Summer Touch Rugby League in conjunction with local public houses for all experienced and novice players from the age of twelve to adult.
  • Supporting the charity "Hampshire Special Needs Rugby".
  • Co-hosting the Treloars Tromp – which has helped raise much needed funds for Treloar College.
  • Organising the Geoff Frith Memorial match in conjunction with HRFU; this raised several thousand pounds of funds for the Parkinson’s Society.

We also continue to build our relationship with the Guinness Premiership side London Irish and are a London Irish Community Club Partner. We work closely with the London Irish Community Team and in particular host Rugby Masterclasses which are particularly designed to improve the skill level of children within our local community.
