THE COUNTY TOWN CLUB
Formed in 1880, the club is amongst the oldest in the country being one of the first sides to enter the league system, playing the likes of Harlequins, Saracens & London Irish. For many years we have played our rugby at the picturesque Mote Cricket Ground, adjacent to Mote Park and the Mote Leisure Centre. The club is RFU Accredited and holds a Club Mark.
We run run 3 senior men’s sides every Saturday (4 on occasions) during the season and with a highly successful Youth and Minis section running sides from U18’s down to U6’s on Sundays, the club has a successful playing structure and membership of over 500.
At Maidstone we believe in a strong community spirit whilst at the same time instilling values of respect & commitment.
Maidstone is dedicated to providing the best rugby environment for skills development and enjoyment. We have been privileged to be part of the development of the stars below.
A FAMILY CLUB
The club believes in a 'ONE GREAT CLUB' ethos, which caters for all.
It all begins at Youth level, where we provide a fun, vibrant environment, where we develop skills. Not just for Rugby, but for development of social, discipline and teamwork which can help provide essential tools at a young age.
We offer inclusive memberships plans which can be tailored, as we include everyone.
There is a huge social aspect at the club as well, whether it's tours, both here and abroad, or special events. We have so much more to offer, than just playing Rugby for the whole family!
JOIN THE RESURGENCE
The 1st XV are amongst the top tier of Kent based clubs and play league rugby in London 3(S) (National Level 8). The club has enjoyed successful campaigns previously in London 2(SE) as unbeaten champions in the 2012/13 season, then followed up by taking the Runners Up spot in London 2(SE) in the 2013-14 season, but narrowly losing the promotion playoff. Additionally the side were London regional Senior Vase champions in 2012 and 2013, reaching the national semi-finals on both occasions.
The 2014/15 season was perhaps the club's most successful in recent times as the 1st XV posted their second unbeaten league campaign in three seasons, finishing as champions of London 2(SE); in the cup competitions they were London & SE Divisional winners of the Intermediate Cup, going on to take the RFU national title with a scintillating performance at Twickenham to lift the trophy. A feat we aspire to achieve again.
The club's 2nd XV (Mustangs) have been resurgent and won the Kent Premier 2 East League in 2017/18.
As well as 3 men’s teams playing league rugby, we are one of very few clubs in Kent that put out a genuine social Veterans side every week. In the past the club competed in the regional Evergreen Cup, having been runners up ion four occasions and lifting the Plate title in 2014, they now compete in Kent's Spitfire Golden Oldies Trophy, winning the cup in its inaugural season in 2015.
Whilst we are always keen to recruit players who can enhance the 1st team squad, all new players & social members are very welcome at the club, whatever their age, level of experience, ability or aspirations.
