What is Oldies Rugby?

Oldies rugby, or “Golden Oldies” rugby as it is often known, is a ‘grassroots footy’ and traditional rugby friendship movement that is intended for players aged 35 and over.

While allowing players to demonstrate the rugby skills they have developed over years gone by, Oldies rugby provides an opportunity for mature players to enjoy their on and off field participation at a more relaxed pace. With a tag-line of “Fun, Friendship and Fraternity” and a focus on enjoyable experiences over competitive victories, Oldies rugby is accessible to players of all fitness levels and abilities.

Our Oldies team, the Dee Why Loin Kings, trains and plays regularly during the rugby season (March through September) and frequently organises international tours to the biennial Golden Oldies World Rugby Festivals.

Our Oldies are an inclusive, welcoming and social group who encourage participation, team spirit, fair play and having fun. If you’re interested in joining us and would like to get in touch, call our Oldies Coordinator (Chris Hegarty; 0411 758 064) or contact us here.
