Mellish RFC was formed in 1931 in memorial to the Mellish Grammar School Old Boys who died in WWII.
The ground was first sited at Podder Lane on Plains Road, Mapperley but moved to our present purpose built ground in 1984. Two of our 4 pitches are floodlit, as is an additional mini pitch / training area.
As well as providing the players with excellent facilities, the club is available for exclusive hire for functions and meetings.

What our clients say?

Just a sample of our feedback

Dawn Hollingsworth

- Function: 40th Birthday

"Great, brilliant, everything went well, every one enjoyed themselves. I particularly liked the room lay out it made everyone feel at home. One of my relations will book the club in the future because they enjoyed the event so much. I would not hesitate to recommend the Mellish for a function in the future."

Mr T Makar

- Function: Wedding reception

"Excellent the whole event went great. The bar staff coped really well and were very friendly. The room was well set out and it was very clean. I chose Mellish because it was at the hub for all our guests, so travelling was no problem and the taxi service was spot on. The large car park was a real bonus for us. I have already recommended Mellish to some of our friends. And I have no hesitation in recommending the Mellish club to anyone."

Daz Boulter

- Function: Annual Family Gathering

"We have always used Mellish for our family party because it is a great venue. It has everything we need: a great function room with room for a band and dancing. There is plenty of space for the buffet and we were able to store the prepared buffet in the chilled cellar. As always the bar staff was excellent and could not do enough for us. The children were so excited when Santa Claus appeared (me in disguise). The whole event was great success and I would recommend Mellish for family parties and events."
