Malta Vets Rugby Tournament

Vets Rugby Tournament 30 apr - 3 May 2021

A great rugby festival for 35+ in Malta

Most of all, Vets rugby tournaments are all about socializing but a good game of rugby goes a long way too and the setup here simply provides for a great weekend of events and testing of ones skills and stamina overall. Many European veteran rugby teams have now experienced the Malta Vets Rugby Tournament Weekend and the feedback received has been outstanding. The Malta Vets Rugby Tournament is organised yearly and is a very popular event staged on the Maltese islands which provide a perfect combination of weather, entertainment and a great rugby community which make up the ingredients of this fantastic event. This will be the 8th year that we are running the Malta Vets Rugby Tournament and we look forward to welcoming many veteran rugby teams from all over Europe. All teams normally arrive by Thursday or Friday morning at the latest. On Friday afternoon it will be time for rugby where we will meet up in a manager’s meeting to set off the weekend. Straight after there will be the welcome gathering for all teams at the official bar of the tourney.

On Saturday afternoon we will hold the rugby event, beer and food will obviously be made available at the playing venue. The games are played in 15s format and the normal Rugby World laws of rugby apply apart from no pushing in the scrums, no lifting in the line outs and no kicking outside the 22. The teams are normally split into groups and a league stage is played in each group. The top teams play for the tournament trophy while the bottom teams play for the wooden spoon. After the matches there is a presentation and 3rd half at the rugby club house and in the evening there is a fancy dress party with lots of drinking and partying till the early hours of the morning. On Sunday its a free day or activity day finishing off with an optional end of tournament dinner.
