Redruth Rugby Club

The stands at the rugby club
The Cornish national sport is Rugby - and Redruth is the home of the famous “Reds”. Redruth RFC currently competes in National Two South, the fourth tier of the English league structure. The Club was founded in 1875 and has produced many great rugby players down the years including the legendary Bert Solomon, Richard Sharp and more recently the England Captain, Phil Vickery.

The Club has two bars and a splendid hospitality suite all of which are available for hire for private functions, seminars, etc. On match days the bars are open to the public.
