Westfalia Rhynern is a German association football club from the district of Rhynern in the city of Hamm, Westphalia.


The club was established in 1935 as Turn- und Sportverein Rhynern, but disappeared after two years when, like many other clubs, it was caught up in the politically motivated sports policies of the Nazi regime. Following World War II, a group that included many of the club's pre-war membership reformed the club in 1946 as Sportverein Westfalia Rhynern.

The footballers advanced to the Verbandsliga Westfalen (V) in 1997 and two years later narrowly missed promotion to the Oberliga Westfalen (IV) when they finished just two points behind champions SC Herford. In 2002, the team slipped to the Landesliga Westfalen (VI) after losing a decisive match to Borussia Emsdetten. They immediately returned to fifth tier play the next season and in 2006 finished as runners-up in the division. Westfalia captured the championship in 2010 and moved up to the NRW-Liga (V). Since 2012 the club has been playing in the tier five Oberliga Westfalen.
