About Coventry Rugby

Club History


During the World War I, neighborhood players and old boys from Sacred Heart Grammar School formed a team from players home from war time active duties.



During these years the club continued include a blend of old boys and non-school members.

A 50th Anniversary celebration was held on 30th July 1970 signifying Coventry Rugby was formed in 1920.

One participant of the club worked at The Coach manufacturers and as a consequence had permission to utilize coaches for moving team players to away matches.



The Club relocated to Hughs Road. A member of the Club had some spare land at his home and a pitch was established there.

The club relocated to Booth Road.



No matches throughout the world war due to a lack of players.



The next move was to the Suffock Road.



The club bought land at The Craven. For a short period the teams needed to change at home. A container was eventually bought for £50.00 to house changing areas.

In 1969 the clubhouse was constructed and approximately a year later, proper changing rooms were constructed, enabling the container to be removed and be substituted with a parking area. Throughout this time expansions were made to the clubhouse.


1984 – present

Coventry Rugby was re born in September 1989 when it relocated from The Craven to a purpose built site at its present The Grounds.

The facilities at The Grounds consist of a licensed participants bar, 2 changing areas, a dedicated floodlit training area as well as a soccer pitch and importantly 2 rugby pitches !
