As an amateur Rugby Club, Ealing Trailfinders gives a warm welcome to players at all levels. Whether you are coming to the game for the first time or returning after a break or just looking for a change, our Playing Memberships offer something for everyone – according to age, experience and inclination.

In addition, the Ealing Trailfinders amateurs players work closely with the Ealing Trailfinders Professionals. In recent years the name and colours of Ealing Trailfinders Rugby have achieved national prominence in the Greene King IPA Championship and the British & Irish Cup, with a special brand of fast and free flowing professional rugby. Many club members can be found pitch-side when the Professionals are playing and many of those same Professionals can be found giving a little extra guidance alongside regular coaches from the Junior and Senior Sections.

This dual professional and amateur structure provides a remarkable rugby pathway that starts with the five year old Rugby Rats and leads to either professional league rugby or top class amateur league rugby with our 1871 team.

We list below the cost of each membership. For further details about the playing section – please check the information on the following links:

Non-Playing Membership

Like all Clubs, Ealing Trailfinders depends on the enthusiasm and vigour of its whole membership to make the right things happen, both on and off the pitch. Many former players, as well as lifelong non-players, show their interest and commitment by taking out Ealing Trailfinders Social Membership. This gives access to the full range of club benefits, including international ticket draws and social events, as well as making a valued contribution to the wider well-being of the Club.

Other Ways to Support the Club

We are always very grateful for any donations that we receive whether they are financial or people’s energy and time, as it takes a lot to keep things working at the Club. Personal donations can be made when renewing your membership or by supporting our many fund-raising activities such as the lottery or RFU raffle.

Details of the lottery can be found here.

For people wishing to make a larger scale donation as a Section Sponsor, then we would be very pleased to discuss a package that can include advertising on www.ealingrugby.co.uk, priority access to tickets for England home games, pitch side and programme advertising, match-day hospitality lunches and an exclusive Ealing Trailfinders stash item.

If your attention is focused on a particular Section (Men’s, Academy, Youth or Minis), then please contact the relevant Chair, or write to the Ealing Trailfinders Club President, Dick Craig, via president@ealingrugby.co.uk.
