Rugby at the College

Rugby has been the main winter sport at the College since 1922. It has always been the Colleges aim that our boys continue to play rugby after they leave the School. We have many former College players who continue playing mainly since 1927 at Old Wimbledonians RFC, but also locally at Raynes Park RFC, Old Ruts RFC and Wimbledon RFC.

The College has regularly produced players who have represented Surrey; London and England Schools at various age groups. We also have a number who have represented Wales Schools and various Irish provinces at age group level.
