Thames Rugby Club

Garron Lane, South Ockendon, RM15 5JU

Thames Rugby Club and its members have worked extremely hard to achieve much-needed improvement. A lot of time and money has gone into creating a smart new outlook for local residents. This we hope to carry on doing for years to come. In the words of some residents, ‘we now have a beautiful view across green sports fields’. Many residents when selling their homes have even listed the field as an asset of their property. With the help of Visteon UK Limited, a partner company of Ford Motors, and with a lot of work from our members we have established a temporary building on site which offers a remarkable degree of comfort with bar and changing facilities. This, together with an excellent flat, well-drained playing surface, means that the Club now hosts junior and senior football as well as re-establishing junior rugby at Thames RFC.
