Playing Kit and More

New kit is available from our on-line supplier.

We also encourage recycling kit to younger players and ask parents to donate old tops and boots back to the club so it is available to new players. There are Second Hand Kit Sales pitch side throughout the season with the money raised going straight back in to the club.

For training you should wear warm and comfortable clothing suitable for the weather conditions on the day. Shorts, rugby shirt, jumper, tracksuit bottoms, trainers or boots are all acceptable. However your clothing should not have any zips. For matches you should wear the club rugby shirt, shorts, socks and boots.

What else you might need

  • You require a parent or a responsible adult.
  • You may also need a drink
  • Something warm to wear while you are not playing
  • A change of clothing if weather looks like it might rain
  • Boots and gum shield - Further details about gum shields, boots and other equipment are available below on in the game development section.


Form Filling

The first thing you should do is ensure that the club have your correct details. Your team manager or coach needs to have your full name, parents name and contact number.

Your coach will also advise you to go online to register your player with the RFU. Once you have done so our club Registrar, Charlie Champken, will be able to advise your coach of your RFU registration number. Please note that unregistered players will not be able to play for the club at Festivals.

Support the Club

Once you start playing at Bournville we hope you will get a feel for what a great Rugby Community we have.

In addition to our thriving Minis & Junior Section our Ladies continue to go from strength to strength and Our Men’s 1st XV will be playing this season in the National League 2 against clubs such as Fylde and Stourbridge. The standard of rugby that they play is excellent and matches make for a great day out.

Also you will be welcome to bring the family to the club to watch the Lions test matches, Autumn Internationals and the 6 Nations at the Avery Fields Clubhouse

We have previously organised trips to Wasps and Worcester Warriors (including getting the players on the pitch as Mascots, Guard of Honour and Flag-Wavers) and we also host regular holiday camps (Rugby & Multi-Sport) for children of all ages which we hope you will try out.
