Welcome to The Whitby Club, Ellesmere Port

A sociable place to enjoy a wide choice of live entertainment and sport whatever your age or taste

The Whitby Club is proud to be the home ground of the Ellesmere Port Rugby Club (nicknamed 'The Oilers' because of our connection with Shell).


Ellesmere Port Rugby Club has been in existence since 1971 and has a thriving senior and junior rugby union set up. Our senior, First XV team currently have an 80% victory rate in the Northern Division of South Lancs & Cheshire 3, playing teams as far away as Knutsford and Manchester.


We focus on being the very best that we can be and encourage the development of players at all levels. As well as normal training sessions we also organise 'clinics' that focus on players and team  skills. Recently our U16's took part in a 'pre-match' clinic at Sale Sharks before their match with Montpellier. It was a great opportunity to hear tips and take coaching advice from world-class professionals. Our power scrums have certainly been improved!


As serious as we take our rugby, we also know how to relax too.

The Whitby Club is a great place to unwind after a a tough, hard fought match. With the several large screens, great beers, real ales on tap and 'great grub', there's no better place to watch the pro's.
