Shepherd Neame Kent 2 is an English level 10 Rugby Union League[1] and is made up of teams predominantly from south-east London and Kent. The teams play home and away matches from September through to April. Currently promoted teams move up to Shepherd Neame Kent 1 and there is no relegation although until the 2007-08 season teams could drop down to Kent 3 (now folded). Now a single division, in the past Kent 2 was divided into regional divisions - Kent 2 East and Kent 2 West.

Each year some of the clubs in this division also take part in the RFU Junior Vase - a level 9-12 national competition.
