TRU supports Bournemouth Sevens

Talking Rugby Union has pledged support for the Bournemouth 7s

Talking Rugby Union has pledged its support for the world famous Bournemouth Sevens Festival.

TRS is now an official partner of the hugely popular event which annually attracts more than 20,000 visitors to the south coast over the May Bank Holiday weekend.

Rugby, netball and music lovers from home and abroad converge on the Dorset resort for the largest festival of its kind in the world. And TRS is delighted to be playing a part in the event which will be held on May 24/25/26.

"It is an honour to be in partnership with such a large sevens competition,  said Max Ashcroft, owner of Talking Rugby Union.

"We are hoping to be involved for years to come, helping to promote the Bournemouth Sevens. We will be advertising the festival through social media platforms and on our website, as well as doing video footage of the tournament through our TRUTV. 

The Bournemouth Festival, owned by the Diamond Sporting Group, was first held in 2008 and has grown year on year. It includes the rugby sevens tournament, Europe's largest netball competition and live bands and DJs across eight festival arenas. Last year it was a complete sell-out and it is expected to be just as popular in 2013 when the organisers will add Dodgeball to the list of attractions.

The 2012 event attracted 300 teams (200 rugby and 100 netball), involving 5,000 players over 19 different competitions.

"Bournemouth is a fantastic event “ a real highlight on the calendar for sevens players,  added Max Ashcroft. "I'm thrilled that Talking Rugby Union will be playing a part in 2013 and hopefully for many years to come. 
