We are proud to announce a new partnership between Hampshire RFU and Wave 105.


Our aim is to spread the word to attract new/returning players of all ages to the game, as well as additional social media marketing which we are hoping will help with the transition of players from school to club rugby. 


25 schools from all over the county took part in this festival at Southampton RFC.


Highlights from the day -


  • Excellent standard of play right across the festival!
  • After a straw poll over 60% of the players involved today only participate in school rugby and the positive experience these festivals provide could provide the push they need to engage with a club
  • Thanks to Jim and Nick at Southampton RFC for hosting us and keeping the teachers and children fed/watered
  • Thanks to the excellent groundsmen at Test Park who kept the festival on even with the recent wet weather
  • Thanks to Divina (Solent University Student Intern) who took on the running of the festival for the first time and coped well with managing the format amidst changing weather
  • Thanks to the volunteer referees from Solent University, University of Winchester and Hampshire Rugby Referees; without all of whom the day wouldn’t have gone ahead
  • A final thanks to our Hampshire RFU RDOs and CRCs without them we would not be able to run these festivals
