The Pattaya Panthers came into being some three months after their first game.

The first time a team was assembled in the name of Pattaya was for the Thailand 10's in April 1998. The debut was notable for the fact that Pattaya became the first team in the history of the Tournament to stretcher people on to the field. Pattaya lost in the semi final by more points that one has fingers, and in what was a trend setting move, handed the 3rd and 4th place playoff to our opponents on the grounds that the beer had nearly run out!!

The name Pattaya Panthers was adopted in July 1998 and this came from one of our silly founder members a silly Kiwi, Steve Ritchie who has sadly since departed.

The club has gone from strength to strength since those early days, however this said nothing will diminish the reason why we still grace rugby pitches all over Asia…….to work up a thirst!!

In 2012 the club kicked off with a long overdue AGM where a new committee was elected and goals set for the year. With the help of a qualified coach the panthers hope to make some waves with regular games and participations with most, if not all, the Thailand club games and even a foreign tour later in the year.

Watch out for the Pattaya Panthers!
