Established: 1922

The Upper Clutha Rugby Club was formed from the union of the Wanaka and Tarras clubs.

The clubrooms offer one of the most spectacular views in the country, overlooking the pristine Lake Wanaka.

100 years of Rugby in Upper Clutha was celebrated in 2000.

Our goal for 2023 is to field a strong Premier and Colts team so we need your participation. If you are interested in playing for the Rams this season head to our Contacts page.

Our Mission

"To promote and govern rugby union in the Upper Clutha through maintaining stable structures for the game that enable its successful development at all levels for the benefit of all its participants’- with a focus on "country rugby philosophies and culture"."​
