Rugby Football

Pirates Rugby players in action

Rugby has been played in Penwith since 1870 when a team of public school boys and university undergraduates paved the way for the formation of the two clubs that amalgamated in 1945 to form the now ‘infamous’ Penzance & Newlyn Rugby Club - the ‘Pirates’. There are many other local clubs which welcome participation at all levels of ability.
