Twickenham RFC announces plans for its 150th Anniversary celebrations on Twickenham Green

Twickenham RFC based at Parkfields, Hampton will be celebrating its 150th Anniversary by playing exhibition rugby and displaying historic memorabilia on Twickenham Green on Sunday 29th October 1.30 to 4.00pm.
This south west London community amateur rugby club is the 11th oldest in England and can trace its heritage back to 1867 when Wellesley House Grammar School, a young men’s academy in Twickenham, played against Richmond 2nds on October 1867. The club evolved into Twickenham and was accepted into the Rugby Football Union in 1880. The year of formation was in 1893 after a meeting was held in The Prince Blucher pub to form a football club adopting the rugby code. Twickenham then played for one season on Twickenham Green.
The activities on the day include a welcoming speech by the club president, mini, junior and senior touch rugby exhibition matches, a unique 150 year TRFC historic display in the Thamesian clubhouse, drinks & anniversary cake, prizes, a lucky dip and raffles. Everyone is welcome to this free event.
The main beneficiary of the proceeds of the day will be the local Shooting Star Chase Children’s Hospice Care Charity.
