We are thrilled to announce that we are the headline sponsor of the 15th annual Beach Rugby Wales tournament, taking place in Swansea on July 30, 2022.
This is not the first time we have been involved with this event. We were initially shirt sponsors back in 2009 and became headline sponsors in 2010, 2017 and 2018.
The event, which originally began as a six-team tournament back in 2006, has grown incredibly and now hosts 54 teams from all over the UK. Beach Rugby is played as touch rugby, but has a tendency to be very physical.
The tournament has also attracted top Welsh International rugby players and British & Irish Lions players including Shane Williams, Richard Hibbard, Liam Williams, Alex Cuthbert, Ian Gough, England`s Ellis Genge, Ireland’s Tommy Bowe, and the All-Black’s stars Jerry Collins and Marty Hollah.
Teams have now incorporated the event into their pre-season plans and use it as a fitness and team bonding opportunity.
The tournament has also been endorsed by UFC President Dana White, who took to Facebook to announce that Howler Head whiskey is also a proud sponsor of the 2022 tournament.
Mark Hobbs, our Managing Director, said:
“It is with great pleasure to announce that we will once again be title sponsors of this year’s Beach Rugby Wales Tournament. We’ve been supporting this event for nearly 14 years and it’s always one of the dates in my diary.
The growth of the tournament has been astonishing, which is a testament to the hard work and dedication of Ashleigh and his team. I can’t wait to see what this year brings and we hope to see another fantastic turnout. #SeaYouOnTheSand!”
