Ilkley Rugby Club is an English rugby union club based in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. The first XV team play in North 1 East League, The Club has been strengthened this summer with a large influx of new players mainly from West Park. Coupled with the proposed league restructuring in the 2021-22 season and a good performance in North One East League this year, we have a good chance to return to the new Level 5 where there will be 3 level 5 leagues instead of 2, all whilst not paying a single player. Ilkley also had a very successful sevens team who reached great heights in the 2017 season winning the national sevens competition! Most of this squad have gone on to secure semi professional contracts.
