Welcome to NZ Harlequins Rugby Club

The NZ Harlequin Rugby Football Club was founded in 1938, Hamilton, New Zealand. With the first official game played in 1939. In 1946, there was a meeting of the club and the club stated a list of aims and objectives:

To renew and maintain old friendships of playing days, to engage in football free from competition, and for the joy of it.

To invite promising juniors to play for the club and teach such youngsters the spirit of the game.

To play friendly games with similar clubs when such can be conveniently arranged.

The annual NZ Harlequins’ under 17 programme was formed in the early 1990’s and has been success since then. Since 2013, we have developed an U13 development programme and in 2018 we had our women’s senior 7s team that travelled to Japan, a first for the club. 2019 saw the vision and commitment by the club to a support a development programme for young female players, which then lead into our first Girls Under16 team.
The NZ Harlequins strive to support the development of our young rugby players, both male and female in the Waikato.
Our current programmes: U13, U17 Girls, U17 Boys Development and senior festival games.

Even though the club was formed in 1938, we are always on the move and are flexible with these changing times.
