RWC 2015

These are the rules set by the RWC2015 (you must be a member of the club since 1 September 2013 to register for club tickets). To find out more about the RWC 2015 terms and conditions please click here.

The rules of engagement

1. Nominate your preferred match.
Check prices and dates on the RWC web site.

2. Send your preferences by e-mail to as soon as you can (it is a first come first served basis). The RWC rules state that each club member can apply for up to 4 tickets only.

If there are no significant conflicts with match preferences you will be sent access to the RWC 2015 web site where you will pay in full and immediately for the RWC 2015 tickets. (The club cannot apply for tickets on the behalf of club members). It is highly likely that your preferred match option will be honoured as we have access to 128 tickets for non Twickenham tickets. It is the Twickenham tickets that are restricted.

3. Once the RWC 2015 tickets agency confirm your payment it would be really helpful to send an e-mail to stating the payment has been received and the tickets are no longer available for any other club members.

We have early access to 6 tickets for each Twickenham match with the exception of Sat Oct 17/Sun Oct 18 where we have 8 tickets for each match. The final tickets will be part of an open ballot.

We also have early access to 128 non Twickenham tickets at 38 games. Club members can apply for any match (4 tickets for each person) up to a club maximum of 128 tickets.

Sunday 4 May 2014 | Fun Day | Knutsford Academy

Our considerable thanks to everyone who helped on the Fun Day. It was a great success for the Club and reflected on the amazing achievements of the mini and junior section and hosted the traditional Presidents XV game.

The Presidents Match was played with great passion, speed and valour. As befits this game the match was won by drop kicks after a well engineered draw and once the again the Presidents Shield was surprisingly won by the elite Presidents XV. Click here for photos.

Great work by so many !

Please park responsibly on Sunday mornings

Be thoughtful and courteous

The Mini and Junior Rugby Club is an incredible success with close to 250 mini and junior players. We recognise this success brings new challenges in logistics, particularly parking. We would kindly ask all parents (and visitors) to think carefully about parking in the school and please be very courteous to our local neighbours. Parking is limited within the school grounds and please respect the needs of our residents when parking close to the school.

May we also kindly remind everyone parking within the bounds of the school to avoid parking on the grass.

We also wish to highlight the schools responsibility to ensure the safety of children and visitors to the playing fields. To help avoid any potential safety issues we kindly ask all visitors to avoid bringing dogs onto the playing fields, unless they are an assistance or guide dog.

Your help is really appreciated.

Knutsford Rugby Club YouTube

We are swiftly approaching our 10th anniversary and in that short time we have built up an incredible Junior Section playing at Knutsford Academy, supported local children's charities with over 100kGBP in fund raising, achieved Cheshire East Club of the Year, hosted a fantastic celebration of rugby with our twin town Montmorency and shared in fantastic memories with our Senior Squad and Sportmans Dinners. It is simply astonishing! Click here to Watch the YouTube Video

As 2013-2014 season is about to start, we wish to thank an incredible team of volunteers (a team so vast it is impossible to list each individual). At the same time it is important to recognise the help of Knutsford Sports Club (our first home for our first game in 2003), the RFU in supporting the growth of our club (the RFU helped fund new kitchen facilities at the Sports Club) and Knutsford Academy (incredible support for all levels of our club).

Knutsford Rugby Club Core Vales

Knutsford Rugby Club is committed to supporting the RFU Core Values program. The key elements of the program focus on Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship.
Further details are available from the RFU web site.

Knutsford Rugby Club promotes the cores values: Play to win - but not at all cost.
Win with dignity, lose with grace.
Observe the Laws and regulations of the game.
Respect opponents, referees and all participants.
Reject cheating, racism, violence and drugs.
Value volunteers and paid officials alike.
Enjoy the game.
As RFU President John Owen stated "These five values are what brought us into the sport and what keep us part of it, they are what rugby union has to offer and go way beyond the pitch and the clubhouse,".
