BEACH RUGBY AUSTRALIA is presenting our BEACH 5s RUGBY competition, a spectacular, fast paced and exciting game – based on modified rules of Rugby Union, Rugby League and Touch Football.
It’s the game you know – but not as you know it!
Beach Fives Rugby 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.
The fastest growing European beach sporting festival is now alive in Australia – Greenmount and Broadbeach Beaches on the Gold Coast, Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast and Townsville, North Queensland are the home of Australian Beach Rugby.
