The Countdown Begins To The Vectis Festival 2016

Held annually by Vectis RFC on the Isle of Wight, the Vectis Rugby Festival is a hugely popular event, which attracts budding youth rugby teams largely from the Southern half of the country.

Festival co-organiser James Eade said, “The festival just gets bigger each year. We had teams from as far afield as Henley and Wimborne, London Scottish and Rosslyn Park, which shows just how good a name the festival has”

This year the festival will take place on Sunday 24th April 2016 and will be hosted at the Seaclose Park in Newport – a fantastic venue for an action packed day.

It’s a rugby event not to miss if you’re a youth team, after you’ve competed once, the festival will become an annual event on your sporting calendar.

Sports Travel South West says “It’s a great introduction to youth rugby touring”.

If your team is 7-12 year olds then the festival allows you to play great rugby in a friendly, fun and competitive environment. In 2015 we saw over 1,500 talented children take part in the event and the number keeps raising.

This event is the perfect way to celebrate the end of the 2015/2016 rugby season so we recommend booking your place now to avoid any disappointment.

As the official sports tour operator, here at Sports Travel South West we have put together a fantastic weekend package offer which makes visiting the Isle of Wight hassle free, and all from just £42 per person. Check out a sample itinerary here. (link to sample tour)

Our package helps you make the most of this exciting weekend by organizing everything from accommodation to transport to food and activities. So you really don’t have to worry about a thing.

By booking a package with us, we can arrange a direct coach pick up from your clubs front door to your destination on the Saturday 22nd. We are happy to arrange group activities to help you see everything this island has to offer before the festival commences on the Sunday.

Depending on your teams needs, we offer Holiday Park, Hotel and Activity Centre weekend accommodation. All teams of mixed ability are welcome at the event.

    I would be interested in taking a team from Oxford RFC U10s to the Vectis Festival on Sunday 24 April 2016. I would be interested in understanding options and likely costs.

    Many thanks
