On behalf of all the Coaches and Staff may we offer you a very warm welcome to the Wimbledonian Warriors – the junior section of the Old Wimbledonians RFC. OWRFC has a long and very successful playing tradition that dates back to the 1920’s, and the excellent facilities at the Coombe Lane ground offer the space and clubhouse for children, and parents, to really get the most enjoyment from their rugby.
During the early 1990’s the Old Wimbledonians had a purple patch of success, both on and off the field of play. Promoted twice in subsequent seasons, and unbeaten in league and merit table, this period culminated in OW’s 1st XV becoming the most successful team across all of the Courage leagues for the season 92/93. A number of our coaches were lucky enough to have been a part of that success, and who knows, perhaps the Wimbledonian Warriors of today will produce another all conquering team in the years to come.
Although we are keen to be competitive and it is great to win, as a Club we believe that the most important thing about rugby and sport in general is that it is fun. Our intention is create a positive and enjoyable, team focused, environment within which all players can grow personally and develop the skills to be the best team players they can be. This in turn will enable us to be competitive, but with a smile on our face and the ability to lose gracefully when necessary. (Hopefully not too often!!)
The Wimbledonian Warriors section is run by volunteers, all of whom have been CRB checked and approved and most are RFU qualified coaches and referees.
