The Aardvarks are Beijing’s most social rugby team! Started in 1999 by a bunch of students who missed playing rugby and some keen-to-learn Chinese friends, the Aardvarks have grown season by season. Comprised mainly of young professionals & students, the Aardvarks is all about meeting new friends, playing good rugby, having fun, and drinking hard.

The team has grown from pub meetings on Friday nights (running around against whoever we could on Saturdays) to being a founding member of the Beijing Cup competition. We have also hosted teams from all over the world and traveled to various Chinese cities to participate in rugby tournaments. We are always looking for new people who are keen to enjoy some good rugby, make good mates and have a great time. Aardvarks can be see all over the world but their favorite off field burrow is at Paddy O’Shea’s in the heart of Beijing Bar district with a beer in hand!


There is right now in Beijing no sport like Rugby. Join now this thriving community of Chinese & Expats, put together for the love of Rugby and for the fun of our many social activities!

The Beijing Aardvarks R.F.C. have both Men and Women’s rugby teams. Once we have tired our bodies on the field, everyone meets up for a few (many) beers at Paddy O’Shea’s (our spiritual home) and get together for one of our famous rugby dinners. Furthermore, the Aardvarks regularly hold private and public events to go partying around Beijing’s best locations! See why Rugby Has Never Been More Social with the Aardvarks.
