The Wanderers were originally the third and fourth teams of Worcester Rugby Club before Worcester became a professional team. In 1998 it was decided that they should enter an amateur side into the leagues, but under the RFU rules, they could not enter another team under the name of Worcester Rugby Club, as they already had one team in the league under that name. So they took the name of the old third team who played under the name of Wanderers. Therefore, in 1999 they entered the bottom rung of the leagues as Worcester Wanderers.
The club currently operates six teams; 1st XV, 2nd XV, 3rd XV, 4th XV, Colts and occasionally a Veterans XV.
The 1st XV play in Midlands One West and the 2nd XV compete in the Midlands Reserve League against 2nd XV opponents from higher ranked Midlands clubs. The 3rd XV and 4th XV play in Merit Table League One and Three respectively and the Colts contest in the Saturday North Midlands Under 19 Colts League. The Veterans side target a game per month during the season.
The club has enjoyed steady growth in playing members following their joining of the North Midlands Leagues in 1999 with five promotions (including three in the first three seasons) and one relegation in 15 seasons, demonstrating the hard work behind the scenes in re-establishing amateur rugby at Sixways.
After a spell in National League Three South West in 2013/14, they now play their rugby in Midlands One West. The club also has a very successful Colts side which has won the National Plate Competition, with several of that winning side having moved up to the 1st XV.
Worcester Wanderers welcome players of all levels and abilities to come and play rugby.
