BRIEF HISTORY OF THE STOOP
In 1963, we acquired what was then an athletics ground just over the road from the RFU’s ground in Twickenham. This became our training pitch and eventually, our home ground. Since then, a lot of work has been done to upgrade the stadium to a 14,800 capacity venue.
Known as The Stoop Memorial Ground up until its renaming in 2005 to the Twickenham Stoop, the stadium is named after former England International Adrian Stoop; a former Harlequins player who later became president of the Club.
