Wanderers came about back in 1951 when several rugby clubs (Pirates and Rovers) from Hope, Brightwater and Wakefield combined.
The name Wanderers was decided upon, with some debate, after an old Wanderers cricket club based in Springrove half way between the Brightwater and Wakefield communities. In 1982, cricket came under the Wanderers banner, followed in 1984 by netball, and tennis in 1985 (now defunct) it's latest edition was in 2011 when Rugby league came on board.
A squash court and newly renovated Gym have been added to the complex making Wanderers a truely multi-sport club. Wanderers main gound is Centennial Park (Brightwater Domain), but also uses grounds at Wakefield Domain, and the recently developed Lord Rutherford Park on the west side of Brightwater. All netball is played at Saxtons field in Stoke.
Wanderers colours are blue and gold.
