1865 Club

The 1865 Club, an exclusive association dedicated to celebrating the rich heritage of Bath Rugby players.

Our primary aim is to build a thriving alumni network, bringing together players who have proudly represented Bath Rugby throughout the years. The 1865 Club offers an excellent opportunity for past and present players to connect in a unique community.

Eligibility for 1865 Club membership includes players who have been part of the 1st XV, United, or Spartans during the amateur era (up to season 1995/1996) and those who have represented the 1st XV from the 1996/1997 season to the present day.

Join us in preserving our heritage and forging an enduring playing legacy for Bath Rugby. Together, we'll continue to build upon the spirit of camaraderie and excellence that defines our club.

Welcome to the 1865 Club.

Kindest regards,

John Hall
Club President and Chairman of Bath Rugby Heritage
