Our South Dorset Rugby Festival (formerly the Bournemouth Rugby Festival) caters for rugby teams aged from Under 7 to 13 and will take place during the Easter school holidays.
We have been running this established two-day Rugby Festival for eight years. For the second year running it will take place at Swanage & Wareham Rugby Club where we have available four full size, plus up to ten midi and mini pitches along with a licensed clubhouse with bar, kitchen, changing rooms, BBQ and food outlets.
Entries are expected from Wales & England with teams playing up to the maximum permitted minutes per game as stipulated by The RFU.
Arrive: Friday 3rd April 2020 Depart: Monday 6th April 2020 Games Played: Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th April
Arrive at your holiday park and check in to your accommodation from 4pm. In the evening there will be a Managers Meeting where you have the chance to ask any questions about the festival.
The first round of games will commence. You will either play in the morning session or the afternoon session leaving you plenty of time to enjoy the Holiday parks facilities. In the evening you are all welcome to attend our Superheroes Theme Fancy Dress Party! This party will get you dancing with a live band and DJ, so make sure you dress to impress.
The second round of matches are played and after all the games are finished you are invited to your presentation event where each player will receive a participation award part and have their photo taken with our celebrity rugby player.
