Following our successful aquisition of "the Rec" we began to rebuild it, literally by QRFC hand. The once verging-on-useless building has now been tranformed into a superb sporting hub with purpose built gym, licensed bar & astro pitches with renewed surfaces. We even reinstated the tennis courts.
The current season sees QRFC celebrate our fifth year.
With a great core of quality players from Queensferry & beyond. We have continued to attract fresh talent, some seasoned & others new to the game since we began in 2009. We provide exceptional facilities for our players with superb coaching, functional strength & conditioning gym with free weights, dedicated changing with hot showers, hair dryers & even toiletries (we spoil you, we really do). Our post-match hospitality is none too shabby either with locally produced or genuinely, home-cooked nosh to enjoy in our members bar. We even have Heinz & HP ;)
Players making their way into senior rugby with QRFC can relish the opportunity to train on floodlit astro pitches in winter & retain fitness over summer in our purpose built fitness & conditioning gym. QRFC are a solid rugby club with a strong player-orientated commitee, coaching & physio team - totally committed to the improvement & support of our players. We offer a progressive, expansive & up-to-date rugby style, welcoming new players from all surrounding areas.
We believe QRFC will continue to grow as a club to be proud of being both competitive & sociable. We aim to get our local community, friends & families involved as we continue to make an upwards dent in our league.

Queensferry Sports & Community Hub
Following the news that "the rec" was to be closed, QRFC campaigned tirelessly to secure its future as a sporting pavillion & have continued to upgrade all facilities. Not only have we funded (& fundraised for) the skips we have filled, - we've built a catering kitchen, a licensed bar, a super cafe & a very functional gym.
We lift dog poop from our pitches & litter from our car park. We keep our astro's professionally cleaned, re-weld the vandalised gates & repair the fences. We sweep & weed our paths & lift the shards of glass so the school bus's can park safely. Queensferry Sports & Community Hub is staffed purely by rugby team volunteers & is open as many days & hours as we can provide cover for.
We are proud of what we do for our community. Come & support us.
QRFC Club History
Edinburgh Leisure withdrew its management & we entered into a long & dilligent fight to save "the Rec" from dereliction or potential external development. Our aim was to re-open it, improve it's facilities & make it an accessible, affordable asset for our local community. We succeeded.
QRFC originated with three founding members around a kitchen table who decided to create a Seniors rugby club. As you do. After a few glasses of wine. We established our home ground at the then titled Queensferry Recreation Centre ("the Rec") managed at that time by Edinburgh Leisure.
We fully recognise the importance of sponsors as forward thinking as our game play.
We offer super incentives for those interested in sponsoring QRFC & QSCH. In addition to printed exposure & social media coverage, QRFC are able to offer permanent advert hoardings (interior & exterior fixings) corporate gym memberships, function suite hire & priority access to tickets for all major Rugby Internationals.
