Bristol Harlequins Rugby Club on Broomhill Road in Brislington next to Beeches Hotels and Goals. 

How to join?

We offer free taster session for the first week - so simply come along and see how your child enjoys playing rugby. Your Team Manager will be able to take you through the membership process and discuss joining fees.

What to bring?

A water bottle and appropriate sportswear. Footwear should be studded rugby (or football) boots. Bristol Harlequins strongly recommend using a gumshield in contact training and during matches for Under 9s and above.  If your child has asthma, an inhaler must be brought along to every session. Rugby is a winter sport so waterproofs and warm clothing should be considered - for players and for parents! Muddy kit and boots are not allowed in the Clubhouse, so it would be a good idea to have a kit bag with a clean change of clothes.
