Our club started back in 2012 with its birth from the old Midland Hills Rugby Club which was around for about 22 years. We started with just a handful of teams from under 6’s through to under 12’s and our senior teams.
We have had a steady growth rate over these past 5 years and without the generous support of our local business sponsors like yourself, growing our club would just not be possible. Along with our many volunteers we rely on kind support from our local businesses to help encourage, inspire and motivate our players across the board to strive to be their absolute possible best.
Swan Suburbs Rugby Union Football Club (“SSRUFC”) has been proudly representing the Midland/Swan Valley District community since 2012, not just in our sporting successes but also through our work in the local community.
