Register to Play X-League 2021


So you want to play some X-League with us? That’s great news!

Here is your step-by-step guide to registering to play X-League with us.

COVID Restrictions

Due to COVID protocols from the RFL, there are a couple of additional steps that we have to take to ensure that we’re allowed to play. The most important change is that players can’t just turn up on the day – you have to be registered ahead of time.


1. Join our WhatsApp Group

We’ve got a WhatsApp group for all our players – this is the easiest way to stay in touch with us. It’s where we’ll be posting the signup form (for COVID return to play protocols) and where any updates will get posted – for example if sessions have to be moved or cancelled.

Please email to get an invite to the group.


2. Register with the RFL

Registration with the RFL is important because it allows us to demonstrate the growth and importance of Rugby League in our area, which helps us to receive targeted support. In COVID times, it’s also required of us in order for us to be able to play. Registration should only take around 5 minutes. Click the link below and select Brighton & Hove Rugby League as your club.


3. Cost of X-League

X-League is free!

No one has to pay to join our sessions, however if you’re planning on playing regularly, then we’d ask you to consider joining the club as a Supporter or as an Owner. At £5/month as a supporter, you’d be helping us to grow the sport of Rugby League across Brighton & Hove and the wider Sussex area, including the ability to provide more chances to play X-League (we’re hoping to grow to several days each week over a number of locations in Brighton over time).


4. Let us know you’re coming to a session

During COVID return to play principles, we will be asking players to confirm their attendance within the WhatsApp group. We’ll also be asking participants to confirm that they aren’t displaying any COVID symptoms. If you are displaying any symptoms, then we ask you to give it a miss that week!


5. Come and play

This is the best bit! Once you’re registered and we know you’re coming, just turn up and play some Rugby.

At the moment, our X-League sessions are taking place on Saturdays (from 10th April) 11am – 12:30pm at Hove Recreation Ground (NW corner).

As a new club, this may change as we find a regular venue – all the information will go into the WhatsApp group so make sure you join!

Due to ongoing Government restrictions, there will be access to toilets but no access to changing facilities.
