BURNHAM-ON-SEA RUGBY FESTIVAL (Under 7-13s boys, Under 13 and 15 girls)
4-7 May 2018
We are delighted to present Gullivers' 20th Burnham-on-Sea Rugby Festival, in conjunction with Burnham-on-Sea RFC. Pontins holiday centre accommodates the majority of teams during the Festival, providing plenty of entertainment and a great atmosphere for everyone outside of the rugby. New for 2018, girls under 13 and 15 sections have been added due to popular demand.
The Rugby Festival
The host club Burnham-on-Sea has a very well appointed clubhouse with enough space for each age group to have their own allocated pitch(es) and also allows all of the rugby to be played on one site. The rugby is played under the English RFU continuum and in 2018 will follow 'Regulation 15'. We appoint independent referees for every game so that coaches and parents can relax and enjoy themselves. All teams will be split into pools, with each age group having between 12–20 teams taking part.
A real party atmosphere defines this end of season celebration in unique Gullivers style. Add in a celebrity appearance from a professional rugby player and you have the perfect culmination to a great weekend of rugby. No wonder this event is always a sell out!
Gullivers' Burnham-on-Sea Rugby Festival is approved by the RFU Somerset division and operates under the guidance and laws as set out by the RFU.
