Our Club

The Club

Riviera Rugby Club was officially launched on 5 October 2010 in Blonay. A group of rugby friends had been meeting for the previous two summers to play touch rugby and the occasional friendly full 15 matches. Interest grew to the point where more than 20 players would regularly join the touch games so the decision was made to form a local rugby club meeting the needs of interested rugby players of all ages and abilities in the Swiss Riviera region.

Our Vision

To create, in the Riviera Region of Switzerland, a popular and inclusive rugby club comprised of local Swiss residents as well as members of the expatriate community living here.

By offering safe and welcoming rugby environment for all ages, abilities and both genders, our ambition is to stimulate and develop rugby in the region. We aim to enable the Riviera Rugby Club to compete at the Swiss national league level within five years.

All Riviera Rugby teams will be comprised of Swiss, as well as players from the international community. Emphasis will be placed on informing and recruiting Swiss players as a foundation for the future.

Our Mission

To develop the existing “Children’s Rugby” and “Veteran’s Rugby”, while introducing a youth development (10-18 years) program, a women’s side and a “Core Rugby Team” to compete in the Swiss national league.

Our Community

The Club is based in the commume of Blonay near to Lac Leman and the town of Vevey. The club name derives from the fact that we are located in an area often referred to as the Swiss Riviera. Go to Union de Sociétés Locales Blonay for more information about local clubs and societies.
