Thank you so much for your interest in supporting British Beach Rugby 2018 (BBR2018). The BBR 2018 team greatly appreciates any donations that will help them deliver a successful event this year.
We are fundraising to help us deliver the second British Beach Rugby Event which will take part on Saturday 23rd June 2018, Boscombe Beach Bournemouth, UK.
After playing Beach Rugby 5s on the European Beach Rugby circuit for 6 years we fell in love! The unique blend of sun, sea and rugby was undoubtedly a winning combination.
The key differentiators of Beach Rugby 5s:
• The sport: fast paced, 5 a side, full contact rugby, on sand
• The incredible events: a festival atmosphere whilst providing high quality competition
• The locations: such as Venice, Barcelona and Marseilles
Knowing there was a huge opportunity for UK representation on the circuit we utilised our passion for the sport and our great relationship with the governing body, the European Beach Rugby Association (EBRA), to obtain permission to bring the sport to the UK with the first event of it’s kind on UK soil. On the 17th June 2017 we launched British Beach Rugby!
