Sunday's Well R.F.C was formed in 1906 and has maintained an active participation since 1923. Throughout this time the club has excelled on a national level gaining much recognition for their performance on the rugby pitch. Outside the rugby pitch however the club has formed a tight-knit community of former players who remain active in the club's activities. "Gathering at the Well" celebrates this extended family and aims to carry the tradition further.
