The Ajax Wanderers are proud to be the VERY FIRST rugby club in all of Ontario and in 2019 the Ajax Wanderers turn 70! Started by a group of English immigrants who missed their favourite sport from back home in 1949, the club originally had no similar opposition to compete against. By 1950 a few more rugby clubs had popped up around Ontario and the great sport has grown ever since. We have many special events planned to celebrate the 70th Anniversary throughout the year. If you’re new to the sport or life long fan, come out and celebrate with the Ajax Wanderers in 2019. Follow us on our social media accounts for all the details throughout 2019!
Once again the Wanderers will be showing EVERY 6 Nations game LIVE at the clubhouse. This longstanding championship between England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France and Italy always entertains. Along with the watching the games, Wanderers will also be offering our well known breakfast “Bacon Buddies.”
Who will be crowned 2019 Champion and who will walk away with the Wooden Spoon? Come out the Wanderers Clubhouse and find out. 1717 Harwood Ave N. Ajax.

2019 sees the first professional rugby team in Canada to join the newly formed Major League Rugby (MLR). The Toronto Arrows kick off their season on January 26th against New Orleans.
Wanderers are very excited for Pickering native and Ajax Wanderers member, John Moonlight who recently signed with the Arrows.
Moonlight is joining the Arrows squad after retiring from a decorated career representing Canada on the rugby Canada 15s team and captain of the Rugby Canada 7s squad. Wanderers are looking forward to watching Moonlight and the Toronto Arrows in their inaugural season in 2019!
