The schedule is confirmed, the food trucks are ready and teams are getting excited for Ruggerfest’s largest year on record – with 34 teams from around the country, from long-time attendees such as WPL’s New York Rugby Club to first-timers such as the Cheshire High School girls.
The tournament has an amazing line up of teams, as well as all kinds of fun in store off the field. The annual raffle is bursting with awesome prizes, from a 3-month gym membership to Balance Gym to a signed USA Rugby Jersey to dinner for two at Chipotle. In between games, players can visit the Ruggerfest Recovery Zone to receive free professional stretching and adjustment services or they can stop by the raffle tent and play some life-size Jenga!
Rugby Athletic will be at the tournament selling rugby gear and equipment, as well as the Official Ruggerfest 2016 T-shirt. In celebration of the tournament and all of the teams and players involved, the annual social will be held from 4-7pm at local favorite Nellie’s Sports Bar on U Street – all ages are welcome at the event! In line with Ruggerfest’s commitment to provide more opportunities for women and girls to compete at higher levels of rugby – one player from each division will win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend a week at the Tiger Rugby Olympic Development Academy in North Carolina for FREE thanks to our sponsors Tiger Rugby.
The tournament is now just days away and the Furies are anxious with excitement to see the tournament come together and share the Ruggerfest experience for the 36th year.
