OFFICIAL DUTCH CHAMPIONSHIP BEACH FIVES RUGBY AND PART OF THE EUROPEAN SERIES
A STRONG BEACH FIVES RUGBY EVENT ON THE BEACH OF SCHEVENINGEN
North Sea Beach Rugby 2018 is a national and international beach rugby event held in the unique The Hague Beach Stadium on Scheveningen beach. In 2018, this will be held on 26 and 27 May. The Beach Rugby tournament in the Hague acquired (inter)national status with the recognition of EBRA (European Beach Rugby Association) and the Dutch Rugby Union. North Sea Beach Rugby is now officially part of the European Beach Fives Rugby circuit, with the grand final in Lignano. And of course the official Dutch Championship Beach Fives Rugby.
BEACH FIVES RUGBY IS CHARACTERIZED BY SPEED AND STRENGTH
Rugby is practised in many forms. The best known are of course the matches in the Six Nations tournament with big names of France, England, Scotland and Ireland. Global rugby is one of the world’s biggest sports and Beach Fives Rugby is an emerging component in the rugby calendar. Instead of 15 or 7 players in Beach Rugby there are 5 men or women on the pitch. Beach Rugby with five players (Beach Fives) is a straightforward and easy-to-understand contact sport. The game rules are clear and specially devised for North Sea Beach Rugby to make everything revolve around speed and excitement.
Beach Fives Rugby - The fastest game of (beach)rugby in the world.
NORTH SEA BEACH RUGBY WANTS A PERMANENT PLACE
ON TOP SPORT CALENDARS
Rugby has received an additional boost in the form of the Rugby World Cup hosted by England (won by the New Zealand team, known as the All Blacks). The Beach Rugby in The Hague is due to the official recognition of the EBRA on the international Beach Fives Rugby calendar. North Sea Beach Rugby hopes that rugby will still get a better known under the Hague but also Dutch audience. Thanks to the commitments, advice and / or support of multiple sports organisations such as Den Haag Topsport, Rugby Academy Southwest, EBRA (European Beach Rugby Association) and the Dutch Rugby Association, the event has become very successful.
