The Queanbeyan Whites Rugby Club is a seven-time Premier of the John I Dent Cup.
Formed in 1954, the Club has since had many successful years in ACT’s Premier Rugby Competitions.
Home Ground: Campese Field: Taylor Park Queanbeyan (Cnr Yass Rd & Kings Hwy)
Ever since the Whites spectacularly donned pink jerseys across all grades in May 2009, and more importantly assisted in raising almost $10,000 for the ACT Eden Monaro Cancer Support Group; Queanbeyan rugby has been widely regarded as an active and successful driver in collecting donations totalling in excess of $35,000, in just over three years, for more than 10 worthy local and national charities. Other notable Whites fundraisers have included the boys wearing yellow socks in 2010 in support of the Cancer Council’s “Call-To-Arms” campaign; the overwhelmingly successful Raffle and Auction night held in early 2011 that raised over $16,000 for the Queensland Flood Appeal; and the 2011 Gentlemen’s lunch raffle also contributed hundreds of dollars to Brain Injury Australia and Outward Bound as part of Andy Friend’s “The Friendly Ride”. In 2012 the Whites continue to maintain our commitment to supporting worthy causes and charities. In recent months the Whites have raised more than $5,000 for the Salvation Army by continuing its participation in door-knocking for their annual “Red Shield Appeal”; this year the new Whites women’s team lead the way in hosting “Ladies Day” that helped to raise $1,400 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation; and on the 28th of June a number of players rode their heart out for the Heart Foundation’s “Go Ride for Go Red”, hosted by Queanbeyan Whites Sponsor Riverside Plaza. The club would like to take this opportunity to send out a big thank you to all those volunteers who have helped to coordinate our fundraising efforts, and to our supporters who have contributed to them.
