Why Halifax RUFC
Founded in 1919, the club endured a nomadic start to life - playing at six different grounds and undergoing four name changes in its formative years.
However the club moved to the current home of Ovenden Park in 1925 and it is here that Halifax RUFC has grown to become a thriving part of the community. The club has enjoyed considerable success on the field - including winning the Yorkshire Cup on a record 13 occasions, the Powergen Intermediate Cup at Twickenham and promotion to the National Leagues.
The club returned to grassroots rugby in 2009 and now boasts an ever-growing membership - with three senior teams, a ladies XV, a mixed ability side. The club also holds an annual Sevens competition, the Halifax 7s, with the event having grown in stature in recent years - with sides from as far afield as Barbados coming to compete.
However this is just the start for Halifax RUFC as it looks ahead to a brighter future.
