We Are The RFA

The RFA is the the Rugby Fives Association, the governing body for the sport of Rugby Fives.

We aim to promote the playing and coaching of Fives at schools, universities and senior level, and throughout the community in general. We do this by organising matches and tournaments throughout the season and advising on – and wherever possible supporting financially – the regeneration of facilities and provision of suitable coaching and equipment to further the game’s development across the country.

We also provide governance for the sport across all sections of the game and work hard to make this wonderful sport, full of heritage, accessible to as many people as possible – both players on the court and spectators off it.
