Harlequin Rugby Club, or “Quins”, is one of the most successful Rugby clubs in Melbourne.  Formed in 1928, the club is one of Melbourne’s oldest and largest with rugby teams from U6 to Dewar Shield Premier 1st Grade, Masters, Wheelchair Rugby and an extensive summer Junior and Senior Touch club.

First Grade 2023 success delivered Quins its 12th Dewar Shield Premiership and was coupled with winning the Club Championship Cowper Shield for the 7th year in a row. Many Quins have gone onto higher honours in International and Super Rugby including current Wallabies Rob Valetini and Hunter Paisami.

Located a short 20-minute drive from the CBD in the inner south-eastern suburb of Ashwood, the club boasts some of the best rugby facilities in the state featuring a large custom-built clubroom and bar along with a recently upgraded $1 million main field playing surface that has hosted Super Rugby trials.

Everyone is welcome at Harlequins – from rugby and touch players of all ages and standards, through to supporters who want to enjoy the atmosphere and hospitality that is Quins Rugby.
