Old Walcountians are an open and friendly club. We play competitive rugby and enjoy the social side of our great sport too.
Old Walcountians RFC were formed in 1932 by former boys of Wallington County Grammar School.
The key objectives of the club are to promote the playing of rugby union football and encourage sportsmanship, comradeship and entertainment. This is why the Counts are a club which takes its rugby seriously whilst maintaining the true rugby traditions of friendship and humour on and off the pitch. A testament to this is the number of new players that we attract each year who find a warm reception. Our superb grounds and facilities are maintained by our talented, award winning grounds person, Pat Hampson.
At a time when grassroots rugby is in decline, Old Walcountians prides itself on being a traditional, well run club (an RFU Accredited Club) with all the essential elements that make rugby worth playing even down to an active "Codgers Corner", But don't just take our word for it, come along and find out for yourself, If you want great sport and a great social scene, then come and join in. We want you! Old Walcountians is an open club and welcomes all rugby enthusiasts as players or social members. The Counts run three teams capable of catering for any standard of rugby player! The first step is to come along and get involved be it training, playing or spectating. Make yourself known or contact any of our committee or captains. They'll be happy to hear from you.
