London Irish Rugby Club
The London Irish rugby club was established in 1898, becoming a professional club in 1996. Sunbury-on-Thames has been the home of London Irish since 1931 when the club bought 11 acres of land off the then Avenue Road for the 'huge' sum of £1,280. Today the club has four pitches and holds regular training and games for both the professional squad and amateur players. On Sunday mornings during the season, the Avenue resounds to the noise
of up to 400 mini-rugby players and coaches that take over the grounds
for training and matches.
