Help Old Sulians RFC raise funds needed to maintain and improve its facilities in the wake of Coronavirus

New stretch target

We did it!  A massive thank you to everyone!

The speed that we reached our target, thanks to the generosity of all that contributed, is absolutely amazing! The comments that were left prove just what a special club this is.

We completely underestimated the generosity of our donors and with the help of Sport England we have smashed our target in 4 days!  

The support has been such that we have extended the target to hopefully add a secondary set of doors on to the pitch from the club and look to purchase additional secure storage.

New doors will allow our members access from the clubhouse directly to the pitch and will really help with the social events in the summer. Ultimately allowing us to raise more funds!

In the short term it will also allow us to implement a one way system in the club which is a welcome improvement with the guidance that is in place  

About us...


Old Sulians RFC is a grass roots community club in Bath providing the opportunity to learn, play and enjoy competitive rugby. We were founded in 1926 as an old boys team for City of Bath Boys School and have been based at our home on Lansdown since 1961.  We firmly embrace the core values of the game and provide an inclusive, friendly environment where our players and members have forged countless life long friendships.


Why do we need your support?

With Coronavirus ending the1593249966_img_1204.jpg season prematurely and the lock down being in place since, we were forced to close and forgo the usual sponsors events and tour games.  On top of this the usual summer hire to the community for birthdays, christening etc have sadly had to be cancelled, these are all vital funding opportunities for us.

It has also affected our friends at AFD football who have not been able to use the clubhouse. 

As a very small club this has of course put pressure on our finances.

What are we going to do with the money?

There are the usual ongoing maintenance projects that need to be undertaken plus the additional safety measures required post Covid 19 to ensure the safe participation of visitors, supporters and players alike. If funds allow we are also looking to renew some essential training kit as it is over 15 years old and in a poor state. 

Areas we would look to finance include:

Upgrade the hot water supply to the bar and kitchen

Renew all external doors to the club

Continue to update the changing rooms and showers

Ensure on-going maintenance of our pitch and ground

Help fund general on-going maintenance and costs of the clubhouse

Upgrade and increase number of tackle shields and rucking pads


Thank you in advance for reading, we appreciate this is a huge ask for our members  and the wider community during these difficult times for individuals, families and companies.  

We are of course extremely grateful to all those that can help out with the ongoing upkeep of the Su's.
