When a group of innovative and dedicated men got together at the Imperial Hotel in Hobart back in 1947 with the idea to form the Taroona Rugby Club, they would not have imagined it would continue for 70 years and turned into the great club it has become.
The past decade has seen on-field success in the senior men’s division with premierships in 2007, 2010, 2012, 2015, 2016 and 2018, but it is off the field where the club comes into its own. The strong culture we have developed has allowed us to focus on developing junior rugby and pathways into senior rugby. Our culture has allowed us to expand our strong on field performance into success in women’s rugby at senior and junior level.
The club is also an active member of the community with charity events each year which not only raise money but awareness for worthy causes. We honour past players and welcome new supporters through our Emperor Penguins Club, with lunches and events build around key games in the roster each year.
Taroona at its core is a family club. Whether you have a long history in the sport and have moved to Hobart or are looking to try something new and meet new people. Everyone is welcome and made to feel at home at Taroona.
Rugby is what brings us together, but it is our club that keeps us together.
