Coaching, Management & Support
The new rugby season starts on Sunday 2nd September 2018
when the Under 7s will welcome players old and new to Farnborough
RUFC. The sessions start at 10am and run until around 12
noon. We meet either on the 3G at Samuel Cody School or
at the club on the field behind the clubhouse.
Some weeks we visit other local clubs for joint training
and throughout the season we enter a team into local tournaments.
Last season we were very successful in these competitions
