Chiltern Rugby Club was formed on 20 December 1924 when a meeting was called to the house of Eric Redfern, "By The Way", Clifton Road, Chesham Bois. It was to serve the expanding communities of Amersham and Chesham. The first game was played against Old Berkhamsted School XV on Boxing Day, 26 December 1924. The first home grounds were a site behind the Pineapple Public House in White Lion Road, Amersham Common together with a field in Cokes Lane until the Copperkins Lane ground was leased from the Shardeloes estate in 1929. The ground, with two pitches and a new pavilion was formally opened at the start the 1929–30 season with a game against West Herts F.C.. The 1st XV has seen success recently by being promoted for successive seasons and reaching the National Leagues. Success at agegroup rugby has also been seen with the u17's reaching the National Plate semi final in the 2010–11 season. World Cup winner Josh Lewsey played club Rugby at Amersham and Chiltern from a young age. Most recently Amersham & Chiltern have seen success across the board. In the 2011–12 season the club won silverware from U13 to senior level.
