Facility development

The RFU is committed to raising the standard of facilities at sustainable community rugby clubs around England, increasing the opportunities to access quality playing conditions for both new and existing players.

To help you make the most of your resources, the RFU has detailed guidance on all aspects of managing and improving your facilities. These range from design and construction guidance for clubhouses and changing rooms through to pitch maintenance and car parking.

Community rugby clubs might not realise the funding avenues available to them.  There are many funding agencies, both at a national and local level, which can help your club achieve its ambitions on the pitch and within the local community.  Whether you want to upgrade your pitch, install floodlights or renovate the Clubhouse, the RFU is here with funding stream suggestions.
