British Beach Rugby 2017

Join us on the beautiful Boscombe beach for a weekend of international beach rugby.

This tournament will welcome teams of men and women worldwide to do battle on the golden sands. This 5s tournament differs from traditional rugby as when the ball carrier has contact with or is tackled by an opponent, they must pass or release the ball within two seconds.

Organiser, Barty Hills is delighted to be able to bring a tournament of this stature to  the UK and thinks he has found the perfect venue on a Dorset beach. “Although I looked at Sandbanks initially, due to its size, Boscombe beach suited the event much better,” he said.

The event taking place on 17th-18th June will also raise money for the charity brainstrust, which supported Barty and his family during his brain tumour treatment and recovery.
