Touch Rugby Beginners Tournament

Glasgow Lions (TUB) Touch Rugby Club - Beginners Tournament

Tournament Details

The event will be held in the grounds of Cartha Queens RFC in the south side of Glasgow and will be organised by Glasgow Lions (TUB) Touch Rugby Club on the 24th May 2008, and it is supported by Glasgow Touch.

This will be the first and only one day Tournament catering for beginners in Scotland and the aim is the development of the sport at grassroots level. The teams should be formed by beginners players (less than 1.5 year playing touch), however 2 experienced players (more than a 1.5 years playing touch) will be allowed in each team.

In our inaugural year we are looking to attract 8 teams in each category (Mixed, Mens, Womens) with a minimum of 4 in order to run each category.

The Team Registration Fees is £70 for a team up to 14 players (£5 per player).

There will be pool stages followed by knockout rounds for the Cup and Plate Competitions in each category, giving the teams the opportunity of some silverware and guaranteeing a minimum of 5games. Individual prizes for best players in each category will be also for grabs.

Games will last 20 minutes with no half time, and finals will be 25 minutes with two halves.

Referees

All referees will be fully qualified.

Prizes

The winners will receive the Cup or Plate with individual medals for each team member.

The prize presentations will be made at the grounds following the last game. An evening after-party (from 8pm onwards) will be held in our sponsors bar ‘Uisge Bar’ in the West End of Glasgow.

Rules
