NEWS UPDATES -  3rd February 2021

The Committee met last night to discuss the ongoing situation with regards to the pandemic.  


Clearly, in line with government policy, all adult and age grade rugby training and fixtures remain suspended and we are at Stage A on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap.


We continue to work with the RFU and Sussex RFU around planning into 2021 and have an exciting programme of activities to launch as and when we are permitted to do so.


We are cautiously optimistic about the summer and the coming season and have developed a planning framework to re-commence training, touch rugby and club events.  


It is great to see so many of our players individually working hard on their personal fitness during this 'down time' - we are excited that we will be back bigger, stronger and more competitive than ever before.



We will provide updates as and when we can.  Please check back regularly and follow us on instagram.


Stay safe everyone!





We train every Wednesday at 1900 at Waterhall Playing Fields Brighton, BN1 8YR.


Sessions are run by our Director of Rugby Simon Stodart supported by our coaching team.  


We train on grass and under our own floodlights.

Matt Ratana Rugby Foundation

We were shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic and untimely death of East Grinstead RFC Head Coach, Matt Ratana. 


Matt was well known to many at Ditchling RFC and was always incredibly generous with his praise for what Ditchling RFC was, and is, trying to achieve.  A great man who will be very sadly missed.


We are very proud to support the Matt Ratana Rugby Foundation.
