The Association welcomes enquiries from anyone interested in starting to play cricket or rugby, as well as from existing players of all standards and levels of experience who would like to join us. We have a thriving Junior Rugby section that covers Under 7s to Under 15s.

In either case, simply contact us for details of our teams, facilities and membership. Whether you live locally in Birkenhead or Wirral, or further afield, we'd be pleased to hear from you.

Although Rugby and Cricket are played at different times of the year, training for both sports continues through the close seasons. If you're thinking of getting involved for the first time, why not try some out of season training?
