The club has thriving Youth and Minis sections, with matches or training sessions on Sundays throughout the season for Under 6s all the way through to an Academy structure.

The club is located in the centre of Tonbridge, with a purpose built clubhouse which overlooks the main playing area. The club has 4 full sized pitches, with the 1st XV pitch fully flood-lit, plus a host of Minis grids. We have also teamed up with The Judd School to help develop a new 3G facility in Brook STreet, Tonbridge which is available for training from 1st January 2017.
TJs is a forward looking club with a strong community base, and welcomes all standards of players and all types of non-players. Everyone is welcome to come to the clubhouse to enjoy the rugby and share in the bonhommie over a pint of beer or glass of wine (other options also available) in the bar. A regular feature of the season is the programme of League Lunches held prior to all home league matches, and all important televised rugby matches can be seen on our large plasma screens.
Anyone who is interested in joining TJs as a playing or social member should contact Adam Hookway the Membership Secretary/Website Manager who will guarantee you a friendly initial (albeit usually an electronic) welcome.
