About Arlechinii

We started out of passion for rugby and for its values. In spite our daily routines, different backgrounds or personalities, we make time for meeting, training and supporting the cohesion of this group just for the whole experience it brings

In the early days, our dream was to take part in the Flanders Open Rugby tournament – the biggest of its kind in the world. This set the goal to constantly outperform ourselves while playing for fun, enjoying every joint effort.

We aim for spectacular running rugby, avoiding contact and “stop the time” when we`re together off the pitch.

During the years, we were glad to host touring sides putting on the table a rugby spirit which fueled ours in such a manner that made us hungrier and eager to promote it, either locally or when touring by ourselves. Touring is an important component of our club as it fosters the group spirit and it supported the clubs existence.

One one hand, we offer competitive rugby, appreciated by any team we played with, but also by former ruggers that joined our ranks. On the other, we put a lot of energy in the social matters so that, as a group, being even a non-playing member it is a joy to be among the Arlechinii by being respected, considered and finding here a friendly atmosphere. We`re a open-minded organization, always adapting, trying new approaches in enjoying each effort and open to new members no matter their rugby experience.

As a group, we consist of members ranging ages 20 to 60, different jobs, locals or expats. This provides also personal development, new friendships, professional networking.

As a club, we advocate for sport as a healty lifestyle, for wide general public access to sports infrastructure and events, for rugby as a valuable and meaningful approach to personal and community development or, at least, a manly alternative to football 🙂. This commitment is shown in our history by initiating & organizing local rugby competitions, supporting other romanian clubs in their initial development, making donations to those in need.
