Pirates Rugby Club was formed in 1962 as a breakaway group from the Magpies who were the only Rugby Club in Tamworth in those days. Their aim was to play hard competitive Rugby on the field and to enjoy the social side of Rugby off the field to the greatest degree possible. In the early days the Club was fairly nomadic moving from different ovals as home grounds until they set up camp at the now spiritual home of Pirates Rugby Ken Chillingworth Oval in 1995. Over the years the club has been committed to upgrading the ground and facilities each year to where Pirates can now claim to have one of the finest facilities in the Central North Zone. Pirates consists all four grades in the CNRU competition; Under 17’s, Under 19’s, Reserve grade and First grade. Pirates teams colours are Gold & Black. If you want to become a member of a progressive Rugby Club drop down to Ken Chillingworth Oval (see map) for one of their home games (check out the season draw on this site). Training starts the first Tuesday in February each year and runs throughout the season on every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 6.30. Pirates always look forward to welcoming new friends to Pirates Rugby.

Pirate’s Rugby Club is well know across the zone as a family Club with activities provided for children at each home game as well as the ground being a child friendly place where Mums and Dads can enjoy their Rugby knowing that their children are being entertained and are safe. We have excellent Canteen and Clubhouse facilities as well as a large covered area to get out of the weather. In addition to this 2010 saw the addition of corporate boxes on the roof of the Clubhouse. These boxes are air conditioned have video facilities and are fully catered. They are available for hire at each home game. After each home game we provide live entertainment in the Clubhouse to add to the social occasion of a day at the Rugby free of charge.
