The Campbelltown Harlequin Rugby Football Club was formed in 1972 by several rugby buffs at the local pub “Lacks Hotel” and fielded a team in Sydney Subbies for several seasons. Growing membership brought a move to the Illawarra District competition in 1974. The club currently fields 3 senior and one colts side in the Illawarra competition.
The Junior Rugby Club was formed in 1980, with teams initially playing in the Parramatta Junior Rugby competition. In the late 1980’s, the Juniors moved across to the Illawarra competition. The Club now fields age teams from Under 11’s to Under 17’s and has been a most successful club in its own right.
The Harlequin Junior Club has supplied numerous players to Illawarra and NSW Country representative teams and several to NSW sides.
