Welcome to the official site of the Charlotte Rugby Club!
Playoffs this weekend! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This Saturday, April 13 will be a big weekend at the Skillbeck Athletic Grounds! First we are being all pro bono like by hosting a high school games. Concord takes on West Meck at 11am. Furthermore, Charlotte's women's side will take on Ft. Bragg (presumably women's side) at 1pm. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The main event (of course) will be the playoff game of Charlotte RFC vs. Huntsville at 3pm. Huntsville, you ask? Yes, Huntsville, Alabama. Huntsville originally didn't want to secede from the Union back in 1861, but later changed their mind (per Wikipedia which is the fountain of infallible truths). Presumably they rejoined the Union again as their rugby club is recognized by USA Rugby, and there is no mention of Confederate Rugby anywhere on their homepage. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway guv'nas, given the momentousness of this occasion, it must be treated with the appropriate gravitas and we will provide a pretty sweet deal to our Olde Boys. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
$50 will get you OPEN BAR from 2:30pm until the end of the first half of the Charlotte vs Huntsville game, APPETIZERS, FREE PARKING and VIP STANDING AREA in the middle of our deck. You can also partake in this offer by paying $75 in social dues. Why do this, you ask? Well, the proceeds will go towards funding Charlotte's playoff travels. And let's be honest, when you are up in the VIP, getting your drink on and your snack on; the ladies will all be thinking that you some stylin', profilin', limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So contact Joey "Beautiful" Nellis (email@example.com) or Bruce "The Admiral" Boucher if you wish to partake in this limited (20 people) offer. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Knowledge is Good" at Charlotte Rugby
This weekend, Charlotte RFC will host two college games at the Skillbeck Athletic Grounds. Appalachian State's women's side will take on Mary Washington (not her as she is long dead, but her namesake university's) women's side at 10am. Appalachian State's men's side will take on Coastal Carolina (from exotic Myrtle Beach!) at 1pm.
At 3pm, Charlotte RFC will take on Camp Lejeune (Marine Corps base) for the final D3 match of the season. Now, hopefully, you like Charlotte RFC and want us to win; but if you like the Marines more, that is cool too. Just come out and watch and buy a lot (responsible amount) of beer (if you are of age).
Thanks to the Charlotte Rugby Old Boys for repairing the deck!
A big thank you goes out to Old Boys & supporters who got together and fixed the deck at the clubhouse on November 10 and 11!

Best wishes & speedy recovery to Alex Bennett
Best wishes & speedy recovery go out to former Charlotte Rugby player Alex Bennett, who suffered a C3 spinal cord injury in the UK, playing for the Lymm RFC over the weekend. Alex played 10 years of professional rugby in England and France, including with the Saracens, England A and the Barbarians. "The Diesel" played a significant role at Charlotte for a few years, from 2004 to 2007. It is with all our love we wish he and his family well in this time of need.
