King Penguins

The King Penguins, the veterans, classics, golden oldies, social team, whatever you might like to call them, was formally launched following the 50th anniversary match against the Houses of Commons and Lords on 31st May 2009 at Twickenham.

The aim of the King Penguins is to occasionally get together to play veterans and/or social matches plus include a charitable or community focused element on tours where this is possible. Each King Penguin tour will have a tour story with photos, which will appear in the Past Tours and Matches section of this website - CLICK HERE

The President of the King Penguins is John Kerr and he is supported by a King Penguin Committee. The King Penguin Tour Manager is Neil Young. Please contact Youngy with any queries on kingpengiuns@penguinrugby.com
