Why Alresford RFC
The club was formed during the summer of 1991, after entering a team in the Winchester Easter Sevens Tournament, and played its first full XV-a-side match in September of that year. Following a very encouraging first season and the recruitment of additional players, the club entered Hampshire Division 3 in 1992. After completing its first season the club formed a 2nd XV and continues to field 2 senior teams. Following promotion and then relegation from Division 2, on a couple of occasions, the 1st XV finally reached Hampshire 1 in 2004. In the same season the club managed to reach the semi-finals of the Hampshire Plate, our best performance to date. The club recently entered a partnership with the University of Winchester Men's rugby team, which we hope continues to grow and prosper.
We currently have two senior men’s teams. The 1st XV play in Hampshire Premiership whilst the 2nd XV compete in Hampshire 3. Minis train on Sunday mornings. We have also recently set up a Women's side, who are aiming to start competing from this season (2020-21).
