We are a large and vibrant Society whose aim is to provide the highest standard of officials to all clubs and organisations who want the best referees for their fixtures.

For current and potential officials, refereeing is a great way to give something back to the sport we love while also helping to widen participation in the great game of rugby. Whether your aspirations are to referee a Junior or Senior side on a weekend or even a World Cup Final as one of our members has done then the Bristol Society will support you every step of the wa.

Respected Worldwide.

The Bristol Society name is known, and respected, worldwide! Refereeing provides a great camaraderie that is shared across the globe.
