About us:

Hellingly Rugby Club was created in 1974 by a group of three rugby fanatics, who over a few too many pints in the local pub in Hellingly, decided that they should set up a rugby team. With no clubhouse or showers, they somehow managed to get some fixtures using a pitch on the local recreation ground. Rounding up anyone keen (or *) enough to join, they soon had enough regular players to enter the leagues, and whilst still drinking in the local hostelry after games, so began the legend that is Hellingly Rugby Club.

40 years later, Hellingly Rugby Club have established themselves in Sussex Rugby, running 2 men's teams and a thriving minis & youth section. Drifting happily between Sussex 1 and 2 and often causing the odd upset each year, the club is a fine example of rugby surviving at grass roots level.

The club has a reputation for it's friendly and social welcome to all who visit. With no major aspirations, it prides itself on strong team spirit and a happy atmosphere - giving players the chance to enjoy their rugby in a social environment.

Oh, and why the Loonies? - the nickname derived from the local mental hospital also situated nearby in Hellingly. Perhaps explains the vacant stares on most players faces.............
