For over 10 years Wincanton Rugby Club have been playing at King Arthur’s School where we had relocated to help restart rugby at the school. This was a success and worked out well for the school who are now self-sufficient and managing their own rugby needs, so we now need to refocus on our main Senior XV.
In order to grow as a club and attract new players, we are returning to Wincanton Sports Ground (in Moor Lane, Wincanton) from September 2020. To make this work we need to invest in the pitch, lighting, the training area, and we need new posts and other equipment to re-establish ourselves and survive as a club.
We are very happy to be returning to the Wincanton Sports Ground (WSG) which was our home when the sports ground was initially established in the 1990’s under the leadership of Peter Rochford and the Recreational Trust Committee. Our return sees us in a different area of WSG where we will play and train in one location. We understand we may not reach the standards shown in the picture above however we will be aiming to turn a currently unused area of the sports ground into our home.
Weare also hoping that if we can achieve this, we will be able to offer the area and our equipment for use by the local fitness bootcamp or any other interested community groups.
Run by a small and committed volunteer committee, Wincanton Rugby Club’s main income is from its members and the generous local businesses who have kindly sponsored us in the past. Raising this money will enable us to make the pitch and training areas a place where people will enjoy participating and that they will be proud to have in their town.
It would be super awesome if you were able to contribute to our cause to help us to reach our goal, and even if playing is not your thing, we would love to see you at the pitch-side once the season restarts.

Looking forward to seeing you soon.
