About us 关于我们

Hangzhou Harlequins RFC was established in 2006 by foreign expats who just couldn’t live without the joys of rugby. Initially the club’s founding fathers played touch rugby, before going full contact in 2008. Since then they have competed against many teams in competitions across China. Most of our players come from overseas, mainly Europe, southern Africa and Oceania, along with a few American Football players who’ve seen the error of their ways. As of 2018, the club consists of a senior Men’s team and a senior Women’s team (aptly named the Harlequeens), who spend most of the season participating in the East Sino 10s and 15s leagues. The club represents the international community of Hangzhou whilst promoting one of China’s rapidly growing sports through cooperation with Zhejiang Universities and various high schools within the province.

The club in the recent past has been sponsored by international companies such as Air Liquide and SDV but now are primarily sponsored by the private jet company Global Jet. We are also proud to be partnered with College B&R as our hospitality sponsor who provide a great venue for social events and represent a slice of home for many expats living in Hangzhou.

杭州哈力根橄榄球俱乐部成立于2006年,由来自各个国家的一些热爱橄榄球娱乐的外籍人员组建而成。在俱乐部成立之初玩的是触式橄榄球,直至2008年逐渐发展为全接触橄榄球。俱乐部已经在中国各地参加了很多场橄榄球比赛。

球队的大多数成员来自海外,主要来自欧洲,南非和澳大利亚,还有一些美国的美式橄榄球队员。

俱乐部曾经获得很多国际大企业的鼎力支持和赞助,如SDV国际物流集团和法国液化空气集团。而且我们在国内也享有良好的声誉,并获得了杭州当地酒吧Vineyard 和 Maya的赞助。

除了常规的训练,我们俱乐部的成员坚持每周的聚会,这也吸引了很多新的队员,偶尔还有女士参与。我们仍在努力通过对中国大学生和儿童提供额外的训练课程,来提高橄榄球在中国的地位.

我们计划明年在北京、深圳和重庆发展7-15个队伍,并且每两周举行一次比赛。
