From the Chairman – Alan Cornell
Welcome to Overton Rugby Football Club (ORFC). Whether you are a player, member, adult, or child I assume you are visiting this site because you love playing rugby and perhaps you are looking for a club at which to play or perhaps visiting us for a game. We are a relatively small club situated in the Test Valley, attracting members and players from all the surrounding local communities. We are a club that is only 40 years old, that came into being due to local people who wanted to play rugby and the local communities’ goodwill and commitment in providing a local ground and much needed support.
We are proud of our clubs’ strong links in our local communities and believe this is the major contributing factor behind our ethos – a friendly and inclusive approach to rugby – and one that is successful too.
As well as the ”everyday” rugby, Overton regularly send teams from all sections on tour. For a small club this is a great achievement.
Every two years we hold an International Rugby FestOval, attracting clubs from all over Europe. The FestOval now caters for the Youth section. The Minis have expanded to run their own festival, the Spring Cup.
So come and enjoy this unique club, from a social aspect or from the playing side, you will be made most welcome.
