Hi to all competitors from the Organising Committee of the Australian Beach Rugby Northern Australian Championships 2020!
Please find below the Site Map for our event on The Strand. Please bring along some shade (you will see team tents can be set-up at the southern end of the site). In terms of potable water for drink bottles, we will also have drums filled with water so you can easily fill those up. There will be a First Aider present, although as per previous, strapping is not available unless as a result of an injury on the day.
RULES: The link to the full World Rugby Beach 5s Leisure Laws is here. Please note that the referees will meet with Team Managers/Captains prior to start of play as a group to ensure everyone is across the rules.
