Covering rugby from the ground up.
From our beginnings in 2005 as a website draws and results portal and hardcopy newsletter, and working variously with the Wellington Rugby Football Union, the Hurricanes and College Sport Wellington over time, Club Rugby has grown to cover and incorporate all rugby coverage with a specific emphasis on the community game.
As well as covering club rugby, we also cover First XV and college rugby, representative (emphasis on amateur representative rugby) and sevens rugby throughout each calendar year.
Our passion is the grassroots aspect of the sport – in particular in assisting maintaining decades long history and positive rivalries between clubs and teams, promoting long-standing competitions and trophies and promoting individuals in rugby as they grow as players and people from school and club to the highest levels of the game.
We have a small team and network of mostly volunteer contributors, who help us promote all this through written, statistical, photographic, and latterly video content channels.
Community Rugby Trust (trading as brand Club Rugby):
In March 2020 the Community Rugby Trust (CRT) was incorporated under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 under No COM62728.
CRT’s stated objective in its trust deed is ‘To foster and promote community rugby with an emphasis on working with existing rugby clubs, including players, administrators and officials, families, and supporters’.
Its core aim is to promote and support all rugby from the ground up, to bridge the divide between community and high-performance rugby, while supporting the clubs and communities that make the game happen.
CRT has been granted donee organisation status by the Inland Revenue Department meaning that individuals and businesses can claim a tax credit on donations to the trust.
