To create a balanced "holiday" feel end of season rugby festival this year we have split the team places into two categories 1) a limited number of festival places are available to our Local Hampshire clubs on a direct entry basis, 2) all remaining places are reserved for touring teams and available through STSW as part of a Tour package.

Sports Travel South West was established in 1982 and is celebrating its 30 years anniversary arranging rugby and cricket tours within the UK and Europe. STSW, as our official sports tour operator, can assist, if required, with accommodation, travel, activities and catering over the weekend to make arrangements within your club completely hassle free.
