Visit Bournemouth Beach…

Visit Bournemouth

While there is plenty do to at your Holiday Park Accommodation another reason for touring to Bournemouth is to enjoy this wonderful beach location!.

A day at the beach is a great way to enjoy some group time together without breaking the bank. Simply enjoy a light training session on the sand, compete in an inter club volley ball competition or see whose brave enough to swim in the sea!

Take on the Pier Zip…

For those groups seeking some more high octane adventure you can enjoy the The PierZip! The world’s first pier to shore zip wire, boasting a 250 metre dual zip wire. The dual zip line means you can ride with family or team mates and challenge them to race to the shore! Launching from the Zip Tower platform 25mtrs above the sea, thrill-seekers race out and “zip surf” 250 meters over the top of the waves to land on the beach!

The Rugby…

The Rugby Festival will be hosted by Lytchett Minster Rugby Club, which is conveniently located only 10 minutes from your accommodation. The Juniors event will take place on Saturday 2nd April, with the Minis following on Sunday 3rd April. The festival will be run in accordance with England Rugby regulations which will ensure your teams will play as much rugby as is permitted for your age group.

At the Festival you will be joined by other touring teams as well as the hosts and other local clubs to make for an enjoyable and memorable experience. After the rugby is complete, you can enjoy the BBQ and Live Music on offer.

But we can also offer you 2 days of rugby…

We appreciate some of our touring teams travel with big squads and would like more rugby in addition to the main Festival to help maximise each players rugby experience. This is something we can arrange this as we also run an event at Oakmeadians Rugby Club – The only rugby club in Bournemouth and a stones throw from the popular Bournemouth Beach.

For this event the Minis will take place on Saturday 2nd April and the Juniors on Sunday 3rd April, to give you two days of rugby if required.
