About Us

Smiths Rugby Club Cheltenham


Smiths RFC is a mens rugby club based in central Cheltenham at The Prince of Wales Stadium. We currently have first and second rugby teams, and have ambitions of starting a thirds/vets team.

Our first team are currently playing in the Gloucester 2 league, having won the Gloucester 3 league in 2014-2015.
In the 2014-2015 season the first team also won the level 11 county cup and the Cheltenham combination minor cup.

Our second team, dubbed ‘the Hamsters’, compete in the local merit table. The Hamsters have experienced a resurgence in the last few years and almost achieved promotion in the 2014-2015.

We train on Tuesday’s at 7pm and Thursday’s at 8.30pm.
We are always looking for new players of all ability to welcome into our great club.

Please browse the website for information on current players, fixtures, sponsors and our social media accounts.

Whilst we train and play our rugby matches very seriously, we have a strong emphasis on keeping the fun and social atmosphere that has been the blueprint of our 60 year Rugby club history here in Cheltenham.
