Cranbrook Rugby Club has a long history in the town and continues to play a vital role in the community.
The club has developed and maintains strong links with schools and community organisations and is widely recognised as adding significant value to the area.
Outside of hosting rugby festivals, County representative matches and County Finals, Cranbrook Rugby Club opens its doors to other sports like lacrosse, athletics, triathlon and cricket as well as hosting private parties, Comedy evenings and the local Slimmers Club.
Not only do we cater for sport but try to provide a hub for the local community.
Our email newsletter contains the latest news, viewpoints and events from the CRFC.
It is delivered for free, to registered subscribers, with occasional updates to report on topical events.
CRFC are delighted to welcome Jack and Sophie Skinner from The Ridge Golf Club & Inca Island Adventure Golf as our new main club sponsor for the next 3 seasons. Jack and Sophie have been long supporters of the club, with their son being one of our mini players, and it is fantastic to have them on board as valued and much appreciated sponsors.
You will have seen the new playing shirt designs for the upcoming 23/24 season, with The Ridge logo on our senior Men, Ladies and Colts shirts, and then the Inca Island Adventure Golf logo on our mini and junior shirts. I think you will agree that they look brilliant!
The Ridge Golf Club is set in some of the most beautiful countryside Kent has to offer with outstanding views over the Weald. The par 71 course was designed by Patrick Dawson, architect of The Belfry (home to many Ryder Cups). The superb views over The Weald, and the layout, including 20,000 established trees, gives the course a mature, interesting feel making it popular with golfers. Inca Island Adventure Golf is 18 holes of fun for the whole family, surrounded by caves, waterfalls, river rapids and even a water- squirting Tiki!
I would encourage all our members to make a visit to The Ridge (Sutton Valence, Maidstone), to enjoy the golf course, adventure golf or of course, the “19th hole” with an excellent choice of drinks and very tasty food available. Visit the website https://www.theridge.co.uk/ to make a booking or to find out further information”.
Please see the links below for a guide to applying for your membership through the RFU’s Game Management System (GMS). I know GMS is far from perfect, but it is a tool with which parents of the Minis and Juniors must access to register their children as players.
Due to GDPR, all members must keep their information up to date. If you cannot remember your password or username, insert the email address that you believe is linked to your account and reset your password. You should now gain access to your account. If you have changed your email address and it is not one linked to your account, then the system will not recognise it. If you are unsure, please contact me.
Please take time to read all the illustrations in these guides and understand how the cap process works for Family memberships. If you need help, please ask, and don’t just plod ahead without reading the guide.
Note: GMS emails often end up in spam boxes, so please remember to check these email boxes.

The 2023 season has been a fantastic one for the Cranbrook CC u13s, finishing on a high with an eight-wicket victory over Marden in the Weald of Kent Cup Final held at Sutton Valence School on 27th August. Throughout the season, they have taken on the strongest local sides and come out on top - with victories against the likes of Sissinghurst, Tunbridge Wells, Leeds & Broomfield, Mote and many more. They even took on the Central Cavaliers district side and lost only very narrowly in the last over! They have shown great strength and depth across the squad, with outstanding batting, bowling and fielding contributions from many different players on different occasions. Everyone has played their part and all the excellent coaching from Tim Hambridge and his team at Skillz Academy, along with natural talent, has really set the players at a very high standard.
Above all, they have played with the best team spirit and sportsmanship, always supporting each other. We are incredibly proud of them all!
