All first XV games, and all Men's, Ladies', Mini and Junior rugby union teams, are based together at our Billesley Common home, in the Kings Heath area, South of Birmingham City Centre and just a mile from our original home in Moseley. The site also houses our extensive school, community and education unit. The main entrance to the ground is on the Yardley Wood Road, on the east side of Billesley Common.
