Membership

Membership is open to all who wish to support Bishops Rugby. We welcome members and their guests to participate in supporter events, at match days and during the season, to collectively make a difference to the playing experience of all boys, regardless of their age group or team level.

Our members include parents, past players, old boys, coaches, and those who don’t have a current link with the school, but enjoy the way Bishops play the game.

Annual membership is R1200 per calendar year, but is structured to encourage various payment preferences and encourage spouses and younger members.

Our preference is a R100 per month debit order. We offer a discount to members who pay the full amount upfront, as well as to spouses and younger members

Please complete the form, make payment, and return to Gina Clayton at rugbyclub@bishops.org.za

  • Why do we play this game?

    Rugby is where a whole life can be trampled into an hour, where the emotions of a lifetime can be felt on a pitch of ground, where a person can suffer then die and rise again. Rugby is a theater where sinners and layabouts can be saints; a common man can become an uncommon hero and champs can become the chumps. It is a place where the past and the future so often fuse with the present. Rugby is singularly able to give us crowning experiences where we feel completely one with the world and transcend all conflicts as we finally become our own potential. ~with apologies to George A. Sheehan.

  • 'I have no doubt that you could pull rugby players out of their many other commitments at this busiest of schools. They could do pillar strength at short break, gym before school, condition during chapel, work on fundamentals and core strength at long break and train every afternoon. We might even beat Gym away. But is that really what we are after?' John Dobson
