Hangzhou Harlequins Rugby Club/杭州哈力根橄榄球队
Add New Venue

Hangzhou Harlequins RFC was established in 2006 by foreign expats who just couldn’t live without the joys of rugby. Initially the club’s founding fathers played touch rugby, before going full contact in 2008. Since then they have competed against many teams in competitions all across China.

The majority of our players come from overseas, mainly Europe, southern Africa and Australia, along with a few American Football players who’ve seen the error of their ways.

The club has gained significant sponsorship with international companies, such as SDV and Air Liquide, as well as local bars, Vineyard and Maya, which backs up our reputation for being a very good social team in China.

Besides regular contact training, the Harlequins stick to their roots with weekly touch sessions, which attract a broad range of players (including the occasional lady).

We also strive to promote rugby in China with additional coaching sessions for Chinese university students and children.

On Saturdays, they have contact training and on Wednesdays Touch training, up to date information can be found on their website.

Every year they have many tours to play against other teams from many cities such as: Xiamen, Shanghai, Beijing, Wuhan and Nanjing.

Don't hesitate to send them an email or check out their website Email:
