Formed in 1923, Esher Rugby is Surrey's most successful rugby club.
The 1st XV currently plays semi-professional rugby in National League 1. The club also supports a further 5 senior competitive and social sides, plus youth rugby for boys and girls, aged 6 to 18.
Esher Rugby boasts a growing membership in excess of 1,000, with season ticket sales increasing significantly in recent times.
The clubhouse is situated within 23 acres of freehold land and has excellent amenities for players, spectators and corporate guests, with dining facilities for up to 200, whilst the ground contains two seated stands with a combined capacity of 2,500.
The club is led by a formidable management team which includes Chairman of Rugby and BBC Sports presenter, John Inverdale and Executive Director and former England international, Simon Halliday.
Throughout the club, Esher’s ideals reflect the RFU’s core values of Rugby, Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship. And recent market research has overwhelmingly shown that the club comes across as being warm and friendly, providing good quality rugby for all.
Whilst we are ambitious, we also have a strong family ethos, derived from a commitment to youth rugby for all age groups. Furthermore, the club continues to develop strong links with local charities, such as the Shooting Star Chase, which offers family-centred care for children with life threatening or terminal illnesses.
Equally as important is the work that the club does within the local community, with coaches working in local schools such as Feltonfleet, St George’s and Esher High and more recently, the club has teamed up with Philips to deliver the Simply Healthy @ Schools project, a corporate social responsibility programme which helps young children better understand the lifestyle choices that they make.
All this is underwritten by a diverse sponsor base, at a variety of different levels, which aids the club’s financial stability.
With membership and crowd attendances rising, we have ambitious plans to develop the infrastructure at the club, to include stadia enhancements. This will allow Esher Rugby to firstly become a more integral part of the local community and also a destination venue providing sports and leisure facilities to a much wider audience.
