Perth Rugby World Cup Village

The Western Force may have come and gone but rugby is still alive and well in Perth.

With the Rugby World Cup taking place in Tokyo, which is just an hour ahead of Perth, many supporters have been making their way to the Perth Rugby World Cup Village aka The Scarborough Sports and Community club to watch the action.

Upstairs is the place to be for the huge screen that dominates the room but there are also four smaller TV screens if you prefer to watch on a diminutive scale. The walls are decorated with flags and football shirts from each of the 20 nations taking part in the competition.

All games are being shown live both upstairs and downstairs but there is not a big screen downstairs just normal size televisions. Food is being served as normal downstairs with Georges Bistro doing the honours. Upstairs food is a very poor relation with a small menu serving pork with gravy, smoked sausage or chicken parmy in bread rolls – all for an extortionate $10 each. We were lucky that there was also a sausage sizzle on while we were there, for a very well-priced $2 per sausage in a roll.

There is lots of different seating upstairs – high chairs around high tables, low chairs around low tables and benches to the side. Wheelchair access is difficult to the upstairs level as the building was erected well before wheelchair regulations were passed. There is wheelchair access for part of the way upstairs and the club is happy to provide some strong-armed young men to help carry the wheelchair the rest of the way. Alternatively, all rugby games can be watched from the downstairs area.

Staff are very helpful and friendly. Everyone is welcome although non-members are given a red wristband to wear. Restrooms are very clean and kept well stocked. There is a fair amount of parking outside the building and in the members and guests parking areas.

Watching the games in the company of like-minded or opposition fans is what the Rugby WC Village is all about. The atmosphere is excellent and according to security, there have been no problems just good-natured passion. As a native Scot, who has spent a lot of years in NZ and who now lives in Australia there are plenty of games for me to watch!

We have six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren who live in different parts of the globe – New Zealand, Scotland and Colombia - which makes a great excuse for us to travel and visit.
