|Union||South African Rugby Football Union|
|Location||Pretoria, South Africa|
|Full name||Pretoria Harlequin Rugby Club|
The Pretoria Harlequins started life as the Civil Service Club, but when the membership needed to be extended beyond the Civil Service, it was decided in February 1906 to change the name to "The Harlequin Rugby Club" and to ask for permission to use the London Harlequins colours and name.
Among the many members of the Harlequin family of rugby clubs, Pretoria were the first to be officially associated with the London club.
The 1995 Rugby World Cup winning coach, Kitch Christie was first a player and then a coach at Pretoria Harlequins.
The current Pumas coach Jimmy Stonehouse, had a stint as head coach at the club before joining the Pumas in the Currie Cup.
