Marbella International Veterans Rugby Tournament

Postby andalucia » Wed Mar 28, 2007 10:00 am

The Vets are coming!

May 4 – 6 will see the first Marbella International Veterans Tournament held at the Bahia de Marbella Ground opposite the Hospital Costa del Sol on the N340. 12 teams from across Europe will take part in a two-day festival of rugby and other events, including a golf tournament. And, of course, the visiting teams will be able to enjoy some of the Marbella Veterans’ legendary hospitality, including a welcome BBQ and prize giving gala dinner and dance. The tournament is also aiming to raise money for Marbella RFC’s successful youth teams.

The action will get underway on Friday May 4 with a golf tournament held at the fabulous Atalaya Golf Club. The teams will then be able to enjoy a welcome BBQ and prize giving at the club.

The first matches start at 10am on Saturday May 5. Although the emphasis on Vets rugby is fun and friendship off the pitch, the games themselves promise to be highly competitive and entertaining. This year teams are competing from Belgium, Portugal, Italy, Gibraltar and the UK, as well as Spanish sides.

The action finishes on Sunday night with a Gala dinner and prize giving at the club, and players and their partners will be able to let their hair down at the disco after the dinner!

Gerry Atteck, spokesman for the Marbella International Veterans Tournament commented “We’re really looking forward to the competition. As well as having a high standard of teams from around Europe, we’ll be having lots of fun off the pitch, and it’s a great opportunity for the vets to give something back to Marbella RFC”
