Our club…

Formed in 1921, Rochdale Rugby Union Football Club is a long established organisation providing the facilities for players of this version of the code in the Rochdale area. We are proud of the fact that all of our players are amateur, we have no professionals playing for our teams.

Our playing grounds are in the Bamford area of Rochdale, at the top end of Moorgate Avenue, off the Bury Road. Our new clubhouse was opened in the 21st August 2005 and provides first class facilities, not only for for club members but also to local businesses and the wider community who require a well appointed venue for meetings and events.

We have 3 senior men’s teams, several mini and junior teams from U7’s through to U12’s and senior colts. We are about to launch our first ladies teams. New players are always made welcome, as are vistiors and guests to our club. Come along and discover Rochdale’s “hidden gem”.

Our clubhouse and pitches…

On Saturday 21st August 2005 the official opening of the new RRUFC clubhouse together with drained and revamped pitches took place. These first class facilities are admired by visiting teams and provide an excellent venue for the people of Rochdale.

Along with the 4 existing playing pitches, 2009-2010 brought in the addition of a fully reconstructed and drained training area with floodlights. These new facilities were made possible with the aid of an RFU grant, for which we are very grateful.

As well with first class changing rooms for players, our new clubhouse boasts a comfortable and recently refurbished bar area and a sizeable function room also with bar facilities. We also have excellent kitchen facilities enabling us to provide catering for functions and events.
