History[edit]

Burnage Rugby Club was founded as an old boys' club for ex-pupils of Burnage High School in 1936. The club moved from Burnage in South Manchester to a new site at Heaton Mersey in Stockport in the 1970s. [2]

Ground and facilities[edit]

As well as two rugby pitches, the club site includes a Par 3 9-hole golf and foot-golf course (Heaton Mersey Valley Golf Course)[3] and 3G artificial rugby and football pitches.
