Why Ilkeston Rugby Union Football Club?
We are a large non-profit Rugby Club, playing teams through out the East Midlands. We currently field 2 senior teams, a colts team, as well as 4 Junior and 7 mini age groups
The club is a centre for community sport - As well as rugby The Stute is also home to football teams, a rugby league club, a cricket team and a bowls club
We are a social Hub - Much more than a Rugby Club, The Stute has a full drinks license and is open to the general public, not just members. The historic and iconic Ilkeston landmark that is our clubhouse, has rooms for hire for social and business functions, and runs several public social events through out the year such as a music festival, food and drinks events and our yearly family fireworks evening.
Ilkeston RUFC, as well as fielding 2 adult teams, a colts team and 11 mini/junior age groups, are also looking to launch a girls U13 section as well as field a development/3rd team to help introduce young players to senior rugby
The club is also looking to succeed off the field as the Executive Committee continue to strive for sustainable success through the organisation of an event such as our Annual Bonfire Night, Family Fun Days, Music Days, Charity Matches and much more.
The Stute or to give it it's proper name, the Stanton Ironworks Sporting Institute is a well known and historic building in Ilkeston, we are starting a process of renewing and refurbishing the inside and outside of this historic building, modernising areas like the kitchen, replacing items such as the windows, whilst retaining the character of this 1930s Art Deco building.
