Barrelhouse Rugby Club completed their first season in 2018/19 finishing top of the UAE Community League and losing to the Dragons in the Final.
The Club was formed by British expats over 35 years ago in Dubai, UAE. An elite group of players couldn’t commit to regular league rugby but were keen to play 7s, 10s and the odd 15s game of rugby throughout the year. Today Barrelhouse is run in a similar sort of way but now boasts the addition of a competitive 15s team alongside and a thriving Youth Rugby Academy alongside our traditional Men’s and Vets 7s and 10s teams. Barrelhouse also tours each year with our 4th tour to Saigon scheduled for September 2019. Barrelhouse has added kids and ladies netball, watch this space for rugby.
Barrelhouse hosts an annual social 10’s tournament, which is growing in popularity each year. The 3rd edition at Jebel Ali Shooting Club in 2019 saw 25+ teams in different categories compete for the famous Barrel trophies.
