Welcome to Royal Wootton Bassett RFC

Our 2021 season marks the club's 50th anniversary, having been formed in 1971 by the original thirteen 'Founding Fathers' of Wootton Bassett RFC.


Royal Wootton Bassett RFC was founded on 21st December 1971, making the 2021-22 season the club’s 50th anniversary. We have since evolved to become the centre of community rugby in the area. Read our full Club History,

The club currently fields four senior sides - a First XV playing in Tribute South West Premier Division, a Second XV in the Dorset & Wilts 1 North League, a Third XV in the Dorset & Wilts 2 North League and a Fourth XV playing social rugby. The club also provides coaching, training and matches for Under 17/18 Colts, a full Minis’ Rugby section for boys and girls aged 5 to 12, and Junior teams aged 13 to 16, including two Girls Rugby teams, the ‘Basset Ravens'.



However, although always ambitious to produce highly successful senior teams, the club's aims are wider. RWBRFC is equally determined to provide an opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to participate and enjoy the game of rugby.

The club has an established set of values followed by the U6s through to senior teams: Commitment, Community, Consistency, Connected.

Commitment: To the club, to each other and to the sportof rugby union, both on and off the pitch.

Community: To promote our sport and club asa model of integrity and inclusion.

Consistency: With the standard of ourdelivery and club goals.

Connected: Top to bottom, youngest to oldest,everyone feels part of the club.

Consolidating on 50 years of grassroots sport in Royal Wootton Bassett, the aim now is to continue to invest in the club's facilities to provide the very best possible playing experience and turn Ballards Ash into the most iconic rugby facility in the region outside of the professional game.
