WebsiteNews | Fixtures | Club Diary


Junior Rugby Start-up - Sunday 14th August - 12 noon 

Start of season family BBQ and game of touch for all ages!

To get the season kicking off and to get back in to our Rugby, Bishopton Rugby club are holding a BBQ for all club members and parents after the first minis / midis training and sign up session of the season.

At 1’clock we will have a club wide game of touch for all ages - including parents if they wish!! This will be followed by a BBQ, raffle and eating competition.

For this event we are looking to get all members of the club together, something that happens very rarely.

Please come along and suggest to any friends or family to head down to get a feel for what Bishopton Rugby Club has to offer. Time to show the world the size of what Bishopton RFC has become!!!

The new season is here with the first seniors league game kicking off Saturday 27th August. Membership fees have been frozen again for this year. Our fees includes membership to the Sports and Social Club, so if you aren't a member of either, please get in touch and we can arrange this for you.
