We have an active membership of over 2,000 and together with their families, friends, guests and visiting Clubs, our footfall is over 8,000 individual visitors per month.
Additionally, we host annual festivals with over 5,000 visitors over each 2-day event.
Our website had over 60,000 unique visits last season, viewing 140,000 pages and it is recognised as one of the 15 busiest in the rugby community nationwide. These figures are growing month on month as the website becomes the hub of club communication and the central information resource for all members.
We own and manage our 60 acre site in Ware, Hertfordshire with first class facilities. These include:
• 1,000 sq ft Bar
• 1,500 sq ft 150 person capacity Hall
• 50 capacity Conference Suite
• 10 Pitches / playing areas
• Physiotherapy Centre
Hertford RFC engenders sportsmanship, healthy lifestyles, fitness and nutrition, respect, teamwork and discipline, whilst ensuring all have fun.
We encourage SUCCESS and some of our past mini and youth players have gone on to play at the highest level, including:
Jamie George (Saracens) - the current England, British and Irish Lion and Rugby World Cup Finalist was one of our Juniors.
Robbie Morris (England, Northampton, Newcastle and Connacht) and James Storey James Storey (Harlequins, London Welsh, Neath, Ospreys, Munster, London Irish) were both first class players who started out at HRFC. They both played at an elite level and are still involved with Club coaching – so who knows where our next successful youngster will be playing!
Giving back to the local community is very important to the Club. Each year we train over 20 new coaches and referees of all ages; and we send members onto the excellent RFU Leadership Course.
We are inclusive, diverse and maintain the highest safeguarding and anti-bullying standards and we are proud of our record on these issues.
HRFC is at the heart of the local community, but we could not provide the facilities without the support of our sponsors – Lea Valley Colour, Miles Smith, City Brickwork, HEWD, DSCO Chartered Accountants, SWCO Financial Planning, Longmores Solicitors, and Hytex to name a few.
We would love you to join our “team” of sponsors and in return you can:
• Fulfil your corporate social responsibilities
• Support your local community sports club
• Become further ingrained in the hearts and minds of the members, their families and your local community.
Please contact David Suckling or Andrew "Bunter" Green to discuss the opportunities available to sponsors.
