2019 sees not just one but two #OspreysChallenge weekends! Ospreys Challenge Wales returns to Bridgend this April before the brand new Ospreys Challenge England hits Grimsby in May!

After the success of the inaugural Ospreys Challenge held in Bridgend last year, 2019 sees two weekends of rugby action held by Ospreys in the Community and official event partners miTour. 

Ospreys Challenge Wales will return to Bridgend on the weekend of the 26th – 29th April for U7 – U16s teams. Accommodated at Parkdean Resorts Trecco Bay (U7’s – U12’s, older teams will be based at local hotels), arrival for teams will be Friday evening before two full days of rugby action. 

While teams above U12’s will compete for trophies in the Cup and Bowl Competition, all the teams that take part will receive Ospreys medals, awarded to them by the Ospreys players themselves, in team presentation ceremonies.

It’s open to both local and touring teams and last year saw more than 1,500 people attending and over 60 teams from Wales, England and Ireland taking part. 

Perhaps your team would like their end of season tour a little further afield? Well allow us to introduce #OspreysChallenge England! This fun-filled rugby weekend gives both touring teams and local Lincolnshire teams of U7s to U13s an opportunity to take on sides they never normally would. 

As well as a fantastic few days of rugby and on-field fun with thrilling games and displays of great sportsmanship, there will be plenty to do off the pitch too. The festival also provides onsite catering and refreshments, entertainment, a fun zone and the chance to meet Ozzie the Osprey and Ospreys players.

The tournament will be held from Friday 3rd May to Monday 6th May, with the playing days taking place on the 4th and 5th of May in Grimsby RFC. Accommodated in a holiday park in Skegness, arrival for teams will be Friday evening before two full days of rugby action.
