ELLINGHAM and Ringwood Rugby Club have now returned to training to prepare for next season, with their women and colts training on Tuesday nights and their men on Wednesday nights at their ground in Parsonage Barn Lane in Ringwood.

Last season Ellingham and Ringwood’s first XV won promotion from Hampshire Division One and are looking forward to playing in the Hampshire Premiership in 2019/20.

Their colts won Hampshire Division Three and also secured promotion.

Their women are in Championship Division Two (South West), which is just two divisions below the Premiership – and the men’s second and third XV’s play in Dorset and Wiltshire Division Two and Three.

The club also have a vibrant Thursday night touch rugby section involving men and women of all ages and abilities.

Over the summer their men’s, colt’s and women’s sides all won their tournaments at the Lytchett 7’s and their men won their tournament at the Bournemouth 7’s.
