There’s no better way to challenge your team than by entering them into an international rugby youth tournament. The Hilversum festival is one of the largest, most well-established and best organised tournaments in Europe, making it ideal for your next school rugby tour.

The club is located just 30 minutes outside of Amsterdam, making it convenient both for the city and the many theme parks in the area. The tournament takes place annually over the Easter weekend and attracts sides from all over Europe.

This school rugby tour offers your team the excitement of being involved in an international tournament known for its high standards. They’ll be able to take these experiences and use what they learn in the rest of their school rugby playing careers and, hopefully, beyond.
