Barnes Minis & Juniors

Welcome to Barnes Rugby - Minis & Juniors.

NEW / PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS - Please read the information below to find out more about our club.

If you wish to find a club for your children to learn and play rugby, whilst having fun, then you have arrived at the right place. As coaches and parents, we know that CONFIDENCE IS EVERYTHING both on and off the field as our children grow and develop. At Barnes, we encourage confidence by having fun in everything we do, that doesn't mean we aren't competitive (we are), we just believe that the children who play at Barnes will develop their rugby skills faster and further if we are all having fun.

This year, the season starts on Saturday 1 September and continues until late April. We welcome all boys and girls who want to develop their rugby from age 4 (the Under 5 age group) to 17 (the Under 17 age group). The Minis section - those at Primary School - train at the Barn Elms Sports Trust pitches (The entrance is on Queen Elizabeth Walk, London, SW13 9SA) on Saturday morning from 9:30am until 11am. The Juniors - those at Secondary School - train further down Queen Elizabeth Walk at the Barn Elms Sports Centre pitches on Sunday morning from 10am to 12pm. As you travel down Queen Elizabeth Walk, the BEST pitches are the first set of pitches on your left, directly opposite the entrance of the wetlands centre. The Barn Elms Sports Centre is right at the end of Queen Elizabeth Walk. If travelling from further afield the Post Code for your sat nav is SW13 9SA.

Membership subscriptions for the 2018/19 season are £175 for a family with a single player within the Minis & Juniors or £285 for a family with multiple players within the Minis & Juniors, membership subs are reduced by £110 if your family includes female players. For prospective members, either those new to rugby or those who are keen to change club, we are regrettably no longer allowed to offer a free trial and have introduced a £10/21 day trial membership for you and your child to confirm that you are both keen to develop rugby skills at Barnes. Once the 21 day trial membership has finished, you will need to pay the balance of your membership subscription if your child wishes to continue playing rugby at Barnes. We have an Exceptional Circumstances scheme to reduce or waive membership subs for those who have exceptional financial or personal circumstances that may prevent their children from participating in the rugby program at Barnes. Any queries regarding the Exceptional Circumstances scheme are treated in the strictest of confidence, please contact Charles Roberts (email : or John Hooper (email : if you would like to take advantage of the scheme.

It is essential that you complete our registration form BEFORE your child takes to the pitch. The registration form can be completed online by CLICKING HERE.

If you have any other queries, please drop us a line at and one of us will get back to you.
