Bristol Sonics are a rugby league club based in Bristol in the South West of England.
The Sonics were formed in the autumn of 2002 by a group of rugby league enthusiasts in the city. The club colours of maroon and gold were chosen as a tribute to Bristol's original rugby league club, which ran from the early 1980s to the early 1990s before disbanding. The Sonics name comes from Bristol's links with the development of the Concorde supersonic passenger jet, which was built and tested close to the club's original ground in Filton.
The Sonics operate two open age teams. The first team currently plays in the West Midlands Division of the Cooperative Rugby League Conference, alongside the likes of Oxford Cavaliers, Burntwood Barbarians, Wolverhampton Wizards, Redditch Ravens and Coventry Bears 'A'. The second team, the Subsonics, plays friendlies and one-off games against other social rugby league sides. 2006 saw the formation of the Sonic Youth, the club's youth and junior section.
