Hampton Rovers Football Club is a proud community club with 90 years of history and we strive to be one of the leading sports clubs in the Bayside area. The club has great facilities at our two home grounds – Boss James Reserve and Castlefield Reserve. Both grounds boast quality playing surfaces and new quality lighting. A new pavilion has just opened at Castlefield Reserve while the pavilion at Boss James Reserve will be redeveloped in the near future with the club currently working with the Bayside Council to finalise plans.
The Hampton Rovers senior teams participate in the VAFA – Australia’s largest senior football competition – and the club offers football from the introductory stage with our Auskick program, through to junior and senior football, while the club saw the return of female football in 2017 with great success and this continues in 2019.
In 2019 the Rovers plan to field more than 30 teams with U8’s through to U17’s competing in the SMJFL and U19’s, Thirds, Reserves & Seniors competing in the VAFA, plus multiple junior and open-age female teams. Over 450 players wore the green & gold in 2018 plus 190 participants in our Auskick program.
Hampton Rovers is a community-focussed club and not only do we provide the ideal opportunity for players of all ages and abilities to play football, but also provide a great environment off the field through various social functions and the general atmosphere that surrounds our great club.
The Rovers welcome everyone to our club. Whether you’re an experienced player looking to play at the highest level in local footy, a player wanting a more relaxed environment to play in the thirds, a parent wanting to get your kids into footy, a business looking for greater exposure by sponsoring the club, or a supporter wishing to get behind the club or volunteer, there is no better time than 2019 to get on board the Rovers as we celebrate 90 years of our great club.
