Mini and Junior Rugby

RWBRFC run a full Minis’ Rugby section for boys and girls aged 5 to 12 - plus Junior sections for ages 13 to 16. Each age group are managed by RFU qualified coaches. Several of the coaches are current players with our senior teams.

We pride ourselves on creating an environment where the needs of the player are put first and every player can develop to the very best of their ability. We strive to provide a growing community-based and financially sound rugby club, offering first class sports, leisure and social facilities to the communities of Royal Wootton Bassett and surrounding areas.


The playing season runs from the 1st Sunday in September through to the 2nd Sunday in May. There will be training or fixtures every Sunday morning (weather and pitch conditions permitting) except during Christmas and Easter. Mini’s coaching (Under 6s to Under 12s) is held on Sunday mornings between 10am and Noon.

Juniors’ coaching (Under 13s to Under 16s) is held on specified weekday evenings with matches usually held on Sundays.


Ballards Ash Sports Ground on Malmesbury Road in Royal Wootton Bassett.  Ample free parking is available on-site.

How to join?

We offer free taster sessions for the first 4 weeks - so simply come along and see how your child enjoys playing rugby. Your Team Manager will be able to take you through the membership process and discuss joining fees.

What to bring?

A water bottle and appropriate sportswear. Footwear should be studded rugby (or football) boots. RWBRFC strongly recommend using a gumshield in contact training and during matches for Under 9s and above. If your child has asthma, an inhaler must be brought along to every session. Rugby is a winter sport so waterproofs and warm clothing should be considered - for players and for parents! Muddy kit and boots are not allowed in the Clubhouse, so it would be a good idea to have a kit bag with a clean change of clothes.


As Royal Wootton Bassett RFC is primarily a sports club, our policy is strictly no dogs on the pitches or in the clubhouse. Please respect our policy when you visit our facilities.
