Smallest Rugby Club World Cup

Bringing together social rugby clubs from around the globe, promoting & celebrating grassroots rugby by hosting a World Cup in a day.

We did it!

On 20th May 2015 we successfully raised £4,622 of £4,500 target with 70 supporters in 56 days

We are Racal Decca RFC and we are the smallest rugby club in the world.

As a one team social rugby club we know that we are not alone in our importance to the game, our local community and our beloved members.

Our not for profit tournament will shine a light on the unsung heroes of our wonderful game, embracing and celebrating clubs that provide social, one-team rugby to their local communities wherever they may be; clubs without glamorous, or in many instances, limited sporting facilities.

Those small clubs that epitomise grassroots and uphold the sport’s core values.

We are looking for clubs throughout the global rugby community to join us on Saturday 19th September 2015, for a World Cup in one day.

Our objectives and concept are clear:

  • Celebrate grassroots rugby while the UK is the centre of the Rugby Universe in 2015
  • Create awareness for the participating clubs to help with player recruitment & retention.
  • Support Rugby Core values
  • For clubs to enter they must be:
    • One team club
    • An amateur club.
    • Must be affiliated to their regional and/or national rugby union.
    • In existence for a minimum of 2 seasons.
    • Playing a minimum of 10 regular games per season.


We have had international, national and local media coverage in recent months.

In the February 2015 issue of Rugby Word Magazine as "date for your diary 2015" along side the World Cup warm up matches, World Seven Series & European Finals to name but a few.

Our event is part of BBC Sport Get Inspired campaign as well as having articles in local and county press through the Kingston Guardian and the Surrey Comet.

Host club Racal Decca RFC are soon to appear on Rugby Tonight on BT Sport as the demo team.

Whilst the media coverage is helping us locate like minded clubs we now require starting capital to secure our venue and infrastructure to stage our event.

As we do not own a clubhouse and pitches your pledges will pay for the hire of our event site, Kingston University's Tolworth Court sports ground.

We will not be able to deliver our vision without your help.
