The Camber Sands Rugby Festival takes place on the East Sussex Coast during the Mayday Bank Holiday weekend. Last season over 120 teams entered with the U7 to U12's festival is played at Grasslands Turf Farm with their brand new rugby pitches. The U13, 14 & 15 teams play at Rye Rugby Club, which is a great venue with clubhouse and 3 full-sized pitches. We will also be running U13 and U15 girls sections in 2019, which will be played at the turf farm.

We have been arranging our Camber Sands Rugby Festival for nine years and it always attracts well over 100 teams. The boys under 7s to 12s play at the Institute of Grass where they grow turf for professional stadiums and we have the ability to provide 30 mini, youth and full size rugby pitches. Teams aged under 13, 14 & 15 years will play at Rye Rugby Club where we have three full sized rugby pitches.
