We are excited to announce that Season 6 will be released with the rebranded name of simply “Beach 5s Australia” or “Beach 5s”.
Since the inception of Beach 5s in Australia, we have adopted the concept of the hugely successful European Beach Rugby model. As we have grown, we now find that the true Aussie love of footy on the beach has been embraced by all footy codes.
In the spirit of inclusiveness, we are now “Beach 5s Australia”
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to season 2023 – bigger, better, brighter.
Beach 5s is a contact fast paced sport where stamina, tactics and ball handling skills create the basis of an exciting game for players and spectators alike.
The pitch measures 31 by 25 metres. Five players a side – up to seven reserves. The Two Second Rule – when a player contacts the ball or is tackled – the ball must be passed or released within two seconds. No scrums – no line outs.
Beach 5s is now alive in Australia – and New Zealand with 2023/2024 season events at Gold Coast, Mooloolaba, Sydney, Townsville, Mount Maunganui (N.Z), Newcastle and Gold Coast Grand Finale.
