Wasps FC is an amateur rugby union club formed in 1867. The men's first team was split from Wasps FC at the turn of professionalism, for the 1996-97 season, to become Wasps RFC, owned by Chris Wright. The team currently plays rugby in the London 3 North West league. Wasps FC owns the Twyford Avenue Sports Ground that was also used by the Wasps professional teams for training until the end of the 2015–16 season

Wasps FC retains close links with their professional brothers and still owns approximately 5% of Wasps RFC.

The youth section has several championship sides and the minis compete actively at the higher levels.

The first team finished tenth in their league, and the second team was relegated to the third (of 6) divisions in the Middlesex Merit Table for 2015-16.

2013-14 Season[edit]

The first team finished fourth in their league, and the second team remained in the second (of 6) divisions in the Middlesex Merit Table for 2014-15. The third team, "The Fat Dads" (though not many are fat), continued to play friendlies and were inaugural members of the Middlesex Social League.

2012-13 Season[edit]

In 2012-13 the first XV finished mid-table in London 3 North West. The second XV finished 3rd in Middlesex Merit Table 3 and was promoted into Middlesex Merit Table 2.

2011-12 Season[edit]

In 2011-12 the first XV had a record-breaking season, winning all 18 games in Herts & Middlesex 1 to gain promotion to London 3 North West. Highlights included doing the double over both Hackney RFC and Old Priorians RFC, the closest challengers for the title.

2010-11 Season[edit]

In 2010-11 the first XV was relegated from London 3 North West back to Herts & Middlesex 1. The second XV competed in Middlesex Merit Table 4 league.

2009-10 Season[edit]

The 2009-10 season was a very successful one for Wasps FC. Fielding two senior men's sides, the first XV won promotion from Herts & Middlesex 1 into London 3 North West and the second XV won the Middlesex Merit Table 5 League, gaining promotion into the Middlesex Merit Table 4 league in the process. On the back of these successes it was announced the club would once again be fielding a third XV for the 2010-11 season.
