RG Heidelberg - a Rugby club rich in tradition

Steering towards celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2019, RG Heidelberg (or RGH as the club is most commonly referred to) has established among the big names in German Rugby.

Championship winning teams in senior and youth Rugby

Winning several German Championships and cups in XV and 7s, RGH is the only Rugby club in Germany that has been a founding member of the Rugby Bundesliga and has been competing in the highest German division ever since. Through its succesful history, RGH has established among the top clubs in Germany.

With 73 German Youth Championships to-date (06/16), RGH´s youth department with teams from Under 8 to Under 18 is by far the most successful among all Rugby clubs in the country, producing numerous internationally capped players with former England centre Philip Christophers being the most noted. Currently there are several German 7s internationals playing for RG Heidelberg's senior team.

Since 2013, RG Heidelberg is also competing with a newly set up women's Rugby 7s team competing in the German Ladies 7s League and finished runners-up in its inaugural season.

Familiar club atmosphere and social environment

Off the pitch, RGH´s familiar atmosphere and the international background of its members constitute a big part of the social life at the club, resulting in common activities, sports and training groups as well as other socialising activities. A big part of this social environment is RGH´s 2nd senior team, which has the function of a development squad for our 1st XV as well as a the core of Social Rugby at RG Heidelberg.
