To be a successful, sustainable rugby club with a strong Grosvenor identity, playing an exciting brand of rugby, recognised for good sportsmanship and great hospitality and for making a positive contribution to Ulster Rugby.
Grosvenor Rugby Club was formed in 1953 and has a long and proud tradition in Ulster Rugby. Over recent years we have enjoyed considerable success and in 2009 and 2010 were short-listed for IRFU Ulster Club of the Year. In March 2012 we were one of only two cubs in Ireland to achieve the IRFU Club Excellence Award and in April 2012 were granted the prestigous Sport NI Club Mark status. In 2013 our 2nd XV were promoted to Junior 1 and in April 2014 the 1st XV won the McCrea Cup at Ravenhill, defeating holders CIYMS in a thrilling match.
We field three adult sides and our 1st XV play in Qualifying 2; our 2nd XV in Junior 1 and our 3rd XV in Junior 5. We place great emphasis on the social aspect of rugby and our annual tour is the stuff of legend.
We train on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6.30pm and our coaching team comprises Alasdair McKee (Head Coach), Alain Douglas (Assistant 1st XV Coach), Colin Lyle (2nd XV) with Darren Miller looking after the 3rd XV. Our Club Physio is Mal McCafferty.
Grosvenor Rugby Club welcomes new members of all playing abilities and can guarantee you excellent coaching, great rugby, warm hospitality and friendly cameraderie.
Proud to be a Stag!
