CLUB MANAGEMENT INFORMATION

Alleygators is a successful leading Rugby Union Club, based on the beautiful Gold Coast of Australia. Our Club Rooms offer some of the best facilities in Queensland, with a magnificent modern club house, a fully licensed bar and rooms along with the Bayou Bistro to quench that thirst and satisfy that hunger. If a flutter is what you’re after you will find modern Gaming Machines in the games room along with a TAB and the Keno being available to all visitors. 

Alleygators is situated on the Southern end of the Gold Coast, just 10 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes to the best beaches in the world.   There are 3 Senior Rugby sides U17’s down the Super 6’s along with a Women’s 7’s programme and team that has U14, U15 U18 and Opens. And last but not least, a flourishing Golden Oldies Team the Toothless Gators that get to play regularly and give back to the game of Rugby what they received in a younger, faster, fitter version of themselves.

The Palm Beach Currumbin Rugby Union Club was established in 1979 and in the last 4 decades has developed a history of being successful both on the field and off. We are known for our competitive spirit and our tough uncompromising brand of Rugby. 

Over the years we have hosted numerous visiting teams from all corners of the globe. They have come and played against our Club sides, and by request, against specially selected Representative sides chosen from the Gold Coast area or from all over Queensland.  In the last few years we have had teams come from Argentina, USA, Japan, England, Wales New Zealand, Canada, Fiji, Samoa, PNG as well as interstate. So quite the League of Nations, experiencing Alleygators hospitality.

If you love your rugby, and you want to be part of one of the greatest little rugby clubs you will find, feel free to come on down.

Or if you’re looking for a club that can host your team on your next Rugby trip, don’t hesitate to contact Alleygators Rugby. We look forward to meeting you.
