Tonbridge Juddians Rugby Football Club is an English rugby union team based in Tonbridge in Kent. The club runs four senior teams, a ladies side and the full range of junior teams.[1] The first XV will play in National League 2 South for the 2017-18 season having won National League 3 London & SE - the highest position in the clubs history.

History[edit]

Tonbridge RFC was formed in 1904 and Old Juddians was formed in 1928. 'Old Juddians' were former pupils of The Judd School in Tonbridge.

The two clubs merged to form Tonbridge Juddians in 1999. The merged club began life in London 2 South, the same level at which Old Juddians was placed in when the league system was founded in 1987. The club suffered two further relegations before turning semi-professional[2] and beginning a rapid climb up the pyramid, including a hat-trick of promotions, which climaxed in the club joining the national leagues in 2011.[3]
