Welcome to the Valley Vintage Rugby Club Web Site
The Valley Vintage Rugby Club plays in the Pacific Northwest Over 40's Rugby Union, which is comprised of clubs located in British Columbia, Canada and Washinton State, U.S. The members of our club are drawn primarily from Senior Clubs in the Fraser Valley Rugby Union including Richmond, Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, and Pocomo. Most of our players once faced each other in the Senior Men's League but are now of course playing on the same squad -- such is the fraternity of rugby. We also have playing members from Bellingham, Washington and from other clubs and locales as well. We welcome new players or friends to the club, so if you are interested in playing or socializing, please drop us a note.
