The Abingdon Sevens traditionally opens the Home Counties' playing season and has attracted sides from throughout the Country and beyond. Initiated in 1956 as a one-off tournament to celebrate the town's 400th anniversary of receiving a Royal Charter, it proved so successful that the decision was made to retain the competition on an annual basis and as such we therefore hold the claim to hosting the longest running club Sevens in England.
Thus the situation remained until the mid 80's when a determined effort was made to acquire grounds and a clubhouse dedicated to Rugby. The project came to fruition when the current base at the town's Southern Sports Park was officially opened by John Pattern MP in 1989.
Throughout its long history Abingdon has contributed much to the game, members representing the county, progressing to first-class level and also on to international status in the Five Nations Tournament.
Several years ago an attempt was made to introduce the youngsters of Abingdon to Club Rugby. From humble beginnings has grown an organisation of some 250 playing members which is amongst the leaders in Youth Rugby development. Ages range from the Micros right through Mini and Junior levels to compliment the three Senior sides currently representing the town.
Abingdon RFC is justifiably proud of its past and the role it currently plays providing opportunity at grass-roots level in a sport which has seen many recent changes. It views the future with enthusiasm as it builds on the long established platform and looks forward to reaping the rewards of the efforts of those committed to promoting local Rugby.
