Social, Events & Tours

 

The Social Side of Rugby

Horley RFC, whilst taking our rugby seriously and competing at our best on the field, enjoy the social side of the game just as much. Many of the players are regulars at Horley's finest pubs and we socialise as a club as often as possible.

We also organise plenty of social events (evenings out, parties etc.) including our annual fancy dress party, pub golf, gentlemen's evening, poker, cinema club and simple 'nights on the town'.

We also arrange rugby tours, both in the UK and overseas, which have to be experienced to be believed! We always ensure that a tour is organised every single year, taking us to countries far and wide to enjoy the rugby and culture! Tours so far have included New York, Bulgaria, Spain, Belgium, Holland, and Italy and we have plenty of ideas for more venues!
