Save the Dates for an Unforgettable 2024 - 2025 year ahead

Valley RFC, one of Hong Kong’s leading Rugby, Hockey and Netball Club is excited to announce that we will be celebrating our 50th season in the upcoming 2024-2025 sporting year. As we enter this momentous milestone in our club's history, we invite all Valley members, alumni, friends, family, and supporters to join us in a series of exciting events that will make this season truly unforgettable.

The Golden Season 2024 - 2025 Launch will be held on Wednesday 28th August 2024, where we officially kick off the sporting season for all our sports teams, as they begin their competitions in the Hong Kong China Rugby, Hong Kong China Hockey Association and Hong Kong China Netball League competitions.

As per usual, we will also have our key annual calendar events through the year, which include the Valley Everest Challenge on September 7th 2024, the Valley Christmas Party on December 7th 2024 and the End of Season Awards Dinner on the 3rd of May 2025.

Half way throughout the year we will be holding our Founding Day Evening Drinks, on the 19th June 2025. Exactly 50 years to the day when our 14 “Founding Fathers” met at the China Fleet Club at 8:30pm with a common interest to play rugby and thus a mighty Rugby Club was born, over the years adding Hockey and Netball into the sporting mix - making what we are today. This special occasion will be a time to reflect on the club's rich heritage and celebrate the vision and dedication of those who laid the foundation for Valley RFC.

We will be finishing the season off with a mighty bang as we hold our “Golden Weekend” of celebrations scheduled to be held on October 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2025.
