A fine season is almost upon us and here is what you have been waiting for – the 2017/18 Social Calendar!
This season is our 60th Season. What is great is that we have the return of a Gentlemen’s Black Tie dinner at Twickenham for our 60th anniversary! Hard to think the club is still younger than a certain first team front row regular… This will be a fantastic evening, however for this season it replaces the Awards dinner of recent years due to the celebratory year.
Up first on Saturday 16th September is Captain’s cocktails.
This is the traditional start of the season, which falls in line with the first home game of the season. All attendees are expected to attend in Hawaiian shirt (and more if you prefer!) and each Captain (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and Club) will be creating a cocktail for the club. Some horrible concoction’s lie ahead on the lines of SLM’s pungent Pink Cava, Rose and Irn-Bru stomach turner last year.
We will be creating events for the club via our Facebook page, so please look out for the events at https://www.facebook.com/chiswickrugby/.
Below is the full social year’s schedule, with some later events TBC. Some returns of seasoned events and a couple of new ones! Due to fixture arrangements, we only have two Super Saturdays (3 or more teams at home) this season.

If there are any amendments throughout the season, the Social Committee will notify you in due course. Further to club emails and Facebook, all events will be listed on the Social noticeboard in the club. If you have any comments or suggestions, the Social Committee are open to your suggestions – please get in touch with Ben/Wee Man – Ben_Cattliff@hotmail.com. The Social Committee is made up of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th team players, as well as those that are club officers. We really hope you can get behind the club events – mainly to enjoy the season and our successes on the pitch, build a great atmosphere across the club and raise funds to maintain facilities and support the club’s expansion.
