Situated in the south eastern area of Christchurch, Sydenham Rugby Club finds the majority of its members come from the Spreydon, Sydenham and Opawa suburbs, and around to the Port Hills. Our members are from multiple ethnicities and range in age from 5-70. Given our huge catchment area there is a mixture of socio-economic backgrounds which make us a very diverse club. The purpose of the Sydenham Rugby Club is to provide organised sport for all our teams. As a club we want to be more than just a successful rugby club. Our aim is to promote community spirit. We give local south Christchurch people the opportunity to participate in sport within a supportive environment that fosters strong family values. In order to manage these teams we have a dedicated volunteer base who ensure each week that teams are able to take to the field and play the game they love. In 2023 our clubrooms moved back to our home ground at Sydenham Park (using the Sydenham Bowling Club premises during the rugby season).
