Malta Vets Rugby Tournament 2016

Posted on October 19th, 2015 by Phil Gibbs

The 2016 Malta Vets Rugby Tournament will take place on 6th – 9th May.

Most of all, Vet’s 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 one’s skills and stamina overall, especially when it comes to the late night drinking games promoted throughout the weekend. This will be the 8th year that we are running this particular event and we look forward to an even bigger turnout with 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 party where all teams will be provided with a limited amount of free drinks to be consumed at the official bar of the tourney. On Saturday afternoon we will hold the rugby event, beer & food will obviously be made available at the playing venue. 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 it’s a free day or activity day finishing off with an optional end of tournament dinner. We look forward to host you on our islands for a memorable rugby tour.
