Welcome to the Painswick Mini and Junior RFC website


This website is a subsidiary to the main Painswick RFC website which can be found at Painswick RFC or www.painswickrfc.org.

Painswick, the original ‘Cherry & Whites’ was formed in 1872 and is the oldest village rugby club in England. In 1873 we loaned our shirts to the newly formed Gloucester RFC and since then they, as the more famous ‘Cherry & Whites’, have achieved significant success within National Rugby meanwhile Painswick have enjoyed the camaraderie of the wonderful game of Rugby at a slightly lower level.


A frosty day at Broadham Fields

Broadham Fields, the home of Painswick RFC, is a superb sports complex wholly owned by the rugby club. Two full sized Rugby Pitches, a training area, with full flood lighting, a large sports hall, for ‘out of the weather’ workouts when required, four changing rooms and importantly a full kitchen and two bars are available. We also provide facilities for other local clubs in the form of floodlit Tennis Hard Courts and a full cricket facility during the summer.

If you live in, or are moving to the area and are interested in joining a friendly and successful, well set up, local rugby club then contact me at Painswick RFC.
