Abbey Touraid Festival of Rugby
The Festival of Rugby takes place at Abbey RFC, Rosehill, Emmer Green, Reading, RG4 8XA on Sunday, 25th September 2016 from 10am until 2pm approximately.
The Festival of Rugby is the culmination of the visit and should be a celebration of everything TourAid stands for – with some rugby thrown in. Sixteen teams of youngsters will play a series of 7′s rugby games where everyone will be a winner. There will also be plenty of family fun for everyone to enjoy. Players are expected to arrive at Abbey RFC on Sunday morning in ample time for a 10am start. There will be a barbecue and bar and you are welcome to bring your own picnics and refreshments. We anticipate finishing at around 2.30pm.
Sixteen teams will play a total of approximately eight matches each.
