SEASONS GREETINGS FROM CHOBHAM RUGBY 

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Chobham Rugby. Seasons greetings to everyone in the Mighty Chobham family, both near and far - we hope you all enjoy the year end holiday with your loved ones. 

   

It is our 50th anniversary this season and we have plenty to fill those 2017 calendars. Join us in London on 2nd February 2017 for a Chobham Rugby City Lunch with special guest speakers, or dance the night away at Twickenham on 25th March 2017 at our 50th Anniversary Gala Dinner. Stock up on your 50th Anniversary merchandise available to order online or from our Club Shop. 

We thank all the Chobham volunteers and sponsors who tirelessly and selflessly make our Club something we can all be proud of. They are working hard to ensure that our players have many opportunities to learn and play great rugby; as well as developing many ideas and initiatives for the future. 



#MATCHDAY

We are delighted to present the first of our Chobham Rugby videos – a great way to celebrate our very special Rugby Club in our 50th year. 

With huge thanks to Duncan Souster of Sous Productions, please enjoy “#MATCHDAY”. We know our army of Chobham supporters and volunteers will relate to the excitement and camaraderie of match day at Chobham Rugby and we really appreciate the time, effort and expertise that Duncan Souster has given to this for the club!

GENTLE REMINDER TO RESPECT OUR CLUBHOUSE, GROUNDS AND EQUIPMENT 

Chobham Rugby supports rugby’s core values. A gentle reminder that our core value of "respect" extends to our Clubhouse; grounds and equipment and we ask that everybody treats these with consideration and respect. 

Chobham Rugby Club belongs to every one of us. Along with our generous sponsors we all pay for the facilities and equipment available to us as we learn; play and support rugby. Please treat our equipment with respect, just as you would the belongings in your own home. Be responsible about using and putting equipment away. Leave our storage sheds as you would like to find them. If something breaks let someone know so we can repair or replace in a timely way.
