The Hackney 1000 was a great success. Players from the club were joined by members of the London Fields Triathlon Club, young people and volunteers from Hackney Quest and members of the local community in attempting to travel 1000km in one park on the day and support the brilliant children's charity. In total we raised £3500. Thank you to everyone that supported us (there's a proper thank you here). Film-maker and photographer Stuart York made this great film of the day, using music composed by young people at Hackney Quest. Enjoy. Hackney RFC will continue to support and fundraise with local charities throughout the upcoming season and beyond. If you'd like to be part of a grassroots rugby club that works hard to make a real difference in it's community contact us:

It’s just 3 weeks until Hackney men’s pre-season begins on July 12th commencing 7.30 at Springhill and just six weeks until the women’s training begins on August 2nd. The emphasis throughout the sessions will be on core skills and scenario play in order to build on the attacking rugby that was the trademark of last season. Throughout the season every Tuesday will see a 90-120 minute session take place as in previous years with Springhill playing host. For the eight weeks following Christmas, once again, we will be utilising the 3G pitch at Mabley Green to avoid the muddy conditions.

Special thanks have to go to Ollie Relph, James Dawson, James Hardwick, Ollie Hart, Mick Ryan, Rob Baker and AJ. Thanks fellas.

An absolutely brilliant turn-out for the second Matt Elliot Memorial Cup ensured a massively successful day at Springhill last Saturday. Despite the rock hard pitches plenty of great rugby was played, not least by the Gladies whose inter-club 7s game completely blew away most of the spectators preconceptions of women's rugby - showcasing the new sides skills and entertaining everyone.
