Firstly, a BIG welcome to all!
Chesterfield Panthers RUFC prides itself in being a well run family club. It upholds the true ethos and the best practises of the game of rugby union. The codes and laws of the game are strictly adhered to as we believe rugby is not just a game but a way of life.
Chesterfield Panthers RUFC is a family club. Girlfriends, wives and children are always made to feel most welcome. It is something for the whole family to get involved in. So whether you are male, female have children, just want to socialise or find out a bit more about rugby come up and meet us.
Chesterfield Panthers RUFC tries to accommodate all players both good and bad. If you are a superstar destined for international honours, we will support you in every way possible achieve your potential and to fulfil your dreams. Likewise our 3rd XV regularly gives parents of mini and junior players their very first rugby playing experience. If you are incredibly bad we may laugh, but hopefully more often then not it will be with you rather than at you. The 3rd XV which has traditionally been the fun side of the club, embraces all players both young and old, experienced and inexperienced, regularly socialising with each other in traditional rugby style.
Last season the 1st XV were the finished 4th in Midlands East (north) Division. And the 2nd XV won the Derbyshire 2nd Cup.
The Senior Club trains every Wednesday evening at 7.00 p.m (arrive 6.45 p.m) until 9.00 p.m. Senior training is not just for 1st XV players. Several 3rdXV players take part for both the fitness and the social. We encourage all our senior youth and students to be involved with senior training.
Senior membership costs Â£55 for the season with a Â£5 match tax per game. If match tax is not kept up to date then players will not be selected. New players membership is due after a month so you get time to try the Panthers experience to see if it is the right one for you. However if this creates difficulties for you please come and talk to us.
