February 4 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm GMT
On Saturday 4th February 2023, the team at Try Tag Rugby and close friends of Sam Winter, will be running the Sam Winter Memorial Tournament.
Sam was a much loved and respected member of the Tag Rugby Community, who sadly passed away this year, and this memorial tournament will be both a celebration of his life and also an opportunity to raise awareness and funds for some very important causes. In addition to the Tag Rugby, there will be a number of fundraising activities, from a raffle to games.
After the matches have finished, players will go back to the Ealing Trailfinders clubhouse to watch the England v Scotland 6 Nations match and have the opportunity to remember and celebrate our dear friend Sam.
– Matches will take place between 12pm and 4pm, with the final format announced once registration has closed
– Players will register individually and be assigned to teams
– Regular 7-a-side Try Tag Rugby rules apply
– All players must be registered for insurance purposes
– Consumption of alcohol is prohibited until the tournament has concluded
The Sam Winter Memorial Tournament will take place at Ealing Trailfinders Rugby Club, Vallis Way, Ealing W13 0DD. Full female and male changing facilities are available on site for use before, during and after the tournament.
The Playing surface at the venue will be 3G.
REGISTRATION & FUNDRAISING
Individual registration is available at £25 per person.
Profits from the event will be donated to charity partners on the day (more details to come). We will also be looking to raise funds from sources other than the individual registration fee – from games to a raffle! If you would like to donate any prizes to the raffle, this would be greatly appreciated – please get in touch @ firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss more.
Please only register if you can play. However, if you plan to come down on the day to support in a non-playing capacity, you will still be able to donate at the event.
If you would like to get involved in the running of the day, then get in touch (email@example.com)!
We are looking for volunteers who would be keen to referee, and if you have any other ideas or areas you would like to get involved in, we’d love to hear from you.
