The South Yorkshire Rugby Challenge 2020
General Rugby Festival Information
The South Yorkshire Rugby Challenge is Burleigh Travel’s newest and most exciting event in the mini and junior rugby calendar. The weekend is designed to give your team a tour to remember and a break from the traditional holiday parks with arcades and limited outdoor facilities that many of you will have tried before. Instead we are offering you a combination of exhilarating team building activities and an action packed day of rugby, at nearby Doncaster RFC (U13 - U16) or at the established Dinnington RFC Mini's Festival, (U7-U12) against both local and touring teams and taking advantage of the RFU extension to the 2020 season for an extra weekend of rugby!
You will be staying at Dearne Valley which is located in the beautiful rolling hills of South Yorkshire. This fantastic state of the art activity centre is spread over 50 acres of grass and woodland; and during your tour you will have the opportunity to enjoy a range of challenging apparatus such as zip lines, climbing walls, high ropes and a leap of faith. The Kingswood centres won the award for the Best Residential Experience at the last School Travel Awards.
All of these activities take place in a safe and secure environment, under the supervision of qualified staff, all of which are included in your tour package. The whole weekend is tailored to give your players a unique team building experience. You will never have experienced a sports tour quite like this!
